Second Annual Cheap Art Auction Fundraiser!

26 Jan
Artist: Julie Heffernan

"Self Portrait as Gorgeous Tumor" by artist Julie Heffernan

The Visual Arts Club at the College of Charleston presents its Second Annual Cheap Art Auction from 5pm to 7pm on Saturday, February 25th, 2012 at the Hill Gallery in the Cato Center for the Arts, College of Charleston.

Our goal this year is to raise $500 to bring our selected artist, Julie Heffernan, to the CofC campus to curate and lecture at our annual Young Contemporaries competition in March.

Members of the Visual Arts Club will combine their talents for this fundraiser through a student-only Artist Lock-In in the Independent Drawing Studio (Lightsey) on February 4th to create original work specifically for the  Second Annual Cheap Art Auction.

Artwork on auction will include paintings, drawings, original prints, photographs and sculptures by our emerging artists at affordably low prices. For art collectors in Charleston searching for upcoming talent and beautiful but inexpensive pieces this February, this is a unique chance to purchase fantastic artwork while supporting the efforts of College of Charleston’s talented young artists in the Visual Arts Club.

Students are encouraged to participate in our Lock-In or to donate work for the show if they are unable to attend.
