PORTSMOUTH – Always wanted to own an original piece of artwork by a local artist, or add to your collection? Two dynamic events are happening in early February at the New Hampshire Art Association’s Robert Lincoln Levy Galley that will be certain to appeal to collectors.
The New Hampshire Art Association is kicking off its 2023 exhibition season with its Annual Fundraiser Silent Auction beginning Feb. 1 at the Levy Gallery and online at www.nhartassociation.org. There will be an Opening Reception on Friday, Feb. 3, from 5 to 8 p.m.
The gallery was closed for the month January for its annual sprucing up that includes a beautiful new desk donated by a generous local supporter.
In conjunction with the auction that runs through Feb.19, the popular Small Works program will also have a new look in a kick-off exhibition.
Participating NHAA artists will be required to submit works in standard sizes of 8x10 inches or 8x8 inches, framed or unframed. This will give the exhibit, that changes out during the year, a consistent professional presentation.
The artwork in Small Works is affordably priced, and bids for the pieces in the Silent Auction start at one-third of the value of the artwork.
“This is a great way for our members to give back to the NHAA and help us to continue creating new exhibition opportunities, educational programming, and building a creative community,” said NHAA Executive Director Amanda Kidd-Kestler. “We are creating an exciting momentum for our 2023 exhibition calendar.”
