Public Auction of ArtSpires – AUCTION CLOSED!
November 19, 2020 – December 19, 2020 at 4:30pm sharp

Wow!  Every ArtSpire was sold.  Thank you!

The Online ArtSpire Closing Celebration on December 19th was a blast, filled with a pictoral review of our two-year Out of the Ashes: Art Emerging from Fallen Trees which included the ArtSpire and Slice-of-Art Exhibitions, and the much anticipated visit by Carol Lipson – our Executive Director – to the North Pole to visit Santa.  We were lucky Santa was able to take time out of his busy schedule to entertain us with his jolly humor, trivia questions and a sing-a-long.  The celebration was taped, so if you missed it or would just like a few chuckles watching it again, click here.
