Project Description

6th Annual Art Auction!

November 10th, 2012

It’s time for our once-a-year signature fundraising event, hosted by the inimitable auctioneer A.C. Dickson! The auction provides us the opportunity to support an emerging new collector base in Portland by providing the best and most exciting contemporary art the region has to offer. Help us raise operating funds to present forward-thinking work from visual and performing artists in Portland. Disjecta provides a professional platform in which artists can realize their best work and engage new audiences throughout the year.

We are extremely grateful to the artists who believe strongly enough in Disjecta’s mission to donate their work*:

** Disjecta is thrilled to provide Portland the first chance to view and bid on Storm Tharp’s 4-panel suite of lithographs created during his Golden Spot Residency at Crow’s Shadow Institute of the Arts. Storm’s residency was the first of an ongoing series funded by The Ford Family Foundation. This work will be exhibited in January 2013 at PDX Contemporary Art along with the prints of other Disjecta friends who created work at Golden Spot: Eva Lake, Pat Boas, Arnold Kemp, Jenene Nagy and Susan Murrell.

Work will be presented in silent and live auction formats.

Preview | Bid by Proxy

The work will be on exhibit during our regular gallery hours: noon – 5pm, November 2-4, or by appointment.
If you cannot attend the main event we will take your bid(s) by proxy.

Olympic Provisions, Boke Bowl, Random Order, Deschutes Beer, House Spirits Distillery !  The auction would not be possible without the support of the many locally owned businesses who support contemporary art. Please frequent them often and tell them we sent you.

 ” Mingle with forward-thinking art enthusiasts at this auction to raise operating funds for Disjecta, one of the most innovative art spaces in town. Noted performance artist A.C. Dickson will be the master of ceremonies. Come and bid on a variety of works from Portland’s emerging artist contingent.” Portland Monthly Editor’s Pick
