Last few days to preview work by 54 artists in person before the Friends of the Sawyer Free Library Annual Art Auction 2021 moves on line #GloucesterMA

The Friends of the Sawyer Free Library Annual Art Auction 2021 is on!  54 artists donated original works of art to help the library.

To generate excitement and get the ball moving, a hallmark of the annual art auction is the group show featured in the lovely Matz Gallery, a remarkable main entrance venue. Temporary shows of work by living artists are rotated monthly. In Gloucester, Massachusetts, art at the threshold greets all library visitors. What a treat to walk though an art exhibit to enter a library! The library interior has boasted major bequests via philanthropists and local big wheels since the library’s namesake benefactor, Samuel Sawyer. Books, art, library and learning were essential and inseparable to the founders.

The contemporary Annual Art Auction group shows begin as silent auctions with starting bids set low (well below retail for some of the participating artists*) ahead of a LIVE event. The idea is the bidding will rise above opening reserves so that The Friends of the Sawyer Free Library Annual Art Auction fundraiser can be a success.

Artist constituency steps up mightily! Don’t miss Oct 4th annual art auction scene for Sawyer Free Library

It’s great to see the beautiful Matz Gallery at Sawyer Free featuring local artists again. There’s always room for the traveling exhibitions on walls and rooms elsewhere in the building, but I think the Matz gallery and Sawyer Free library sings most when it devotes its main exhibition space to local artists.

Save the date for the LIVE event! OCTOBER 4, 2017

The annual benefit exhibition is hung salon style in advance of an exciting annual live auction reception. Stop by to preview the art or leave a silent bid.¬† Minimum opening bids range from $40-$400. On October 4th, bring your family, friends and co-workers. There’s always a great buzz in the room.¬† Bid alone or ‘group-on’ with friends–and generously! You’ll help the artist and the art community in general as well as the library.

Sawyer Free Library deserves the community’s support. Here’s a list of all the 2017 participating magnanimous artists (many are repeat donors). Enjoy some photos from the exhibit to draw your attention to the art.

Jerry Ackerman, Deborah F. Aldrich, Cynthia Asaro, Anita Beloff, Baraka Robin Berger, Coco Berkman, Sheila Farren Billings, Bob Blue, Carmel Bourneuf, Isabelle K. Brown, Pamela Burke, Ann G. Campbell, Nancy Caplan, Katherine Coakley, Ray Crane, Mary Crowningshield, Mary Curcio, Susan W.
