ARTRAGEOUS Annual Benefit Auction

Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, 5:00 pm

Can you help?
We are looking for some special, last minute items to make the auction a success. Especially needed are air miles. Traditionally, our most popular items are the out-of-town packages. This year, the airlines have cut their giving, so we are asking you, our community, if you could help by donating your air miles to the auction, so that we can include air fair for these popular packages. We are also welcoming special collectable items. Perhaps you inherited china, crystal or silver that doesn’t match your entertaining style. Consider donating to the auction where these items will be cherished and help support the arts in our community. Please call Kate at 541-772-8118, or email her at [email protected] to donate!

To make the auction a success we will also need help from our wonderful volunteers. We will need help setting up and decorating the morning of the auction, and help breaking down the night of the auction. If you would like to help with the auction or volunteer at the gallery, please contact Kate Marrocco at [email protected], or fill out an on-line request at

The Auction is our primary fund raising event ensuring that we continue to deliver exceptional exhibits, art education, support for artists, and enliven the heart of downtown Medford. Please join us in promoting the relevance of art in the 21st century in our region through your support of our annual auction.

Join us for our annual ‘Artrageous’ Auction and help support the arts in our community.
