Artwork donations should be dropped off during registration/check-in on Friday morning. If wanted a receipt for tax purposes will be given to the donor for items donated. (Only the cost of materials is deductible.)

“Time Goes By”
 KAEA Art Auction at Rock Springs

In previous years art auctions at the Fall Conference at Rock Springs were the big event on Saturday evening.  Bidding numbers were acquired by 8:00 p.m. and auctioneer Bob Cross started the auction.  There was always some strong competition for the works up for auction. They could bring up to $120.00 with ring man Cal Mahin taking the bids.

A mysterious auction piece just arrived for the auction.  Where did it come from?  Not a soul knew.  The following instructions were attached:  Do not unwrap, buy sight unseen, take home and unwrap, add to the composition, sign, wrap it back up, and bring it back for the KAEA Fall Conference art auction the following year. 

Great news!  The mysterious work will be back this year for the art auction at Rock Springs on Friday evening!
