About the Verge Art Auction

Verge Center for the Arts is proud to present our annual Art Auction, a fundraising event that provides art lovers & local collectors an opportunity to acquire original works of fine art, while supporting a non-profit organization and community of artists. The Art Auction will commence with an opening reception showcasing biddable artworks on Thursday, November 3 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. Attendees at the event will have the first look at items available in the auction, and can enjoy light bites and beverages as they plan their bidding strategies.

As always, our auction will be a testament to the vitality, community, and strength of our region. By supporting the Verge Art Auction, you are playing a key role in helping Verge shape the landscape of the Sacramento arts scene. Through exhibitions, public programs, and events, Verge nurtures dialogue and conversation for artists and art lovers alike. 

The Verge Art Auction is one of our most crucial sources of funding for all of our programs each year, and we are counting on remarkable, generous supporters like you to help us continue presenting the high quality, arts-focused programming our region needs.
