Special Event  |  2013 Art Auction & Gala SOLD OUT

Friday, September 20, 2013, 6–11 pm

The 2013 Art Auction and Gala is SOLD OUT.

The 2013 Art Auction & Gala is September 20, 2013 at the Burchfield Penney Art Center.

The Art Auction & Gala celebrates five years in the Gwathmey-Siegel-designed museum which opened on November 22, 2008 with a special tribute to William J. Magavern II and Paula Joy Reinhold. It was Bill's vision and generosity that began the campaign for a new museum for the Center. Paula's leadership as chair of  the capital campaign raised more than $36 million, an amount which surpassed the campaign's goal!

This creative black tie event features an auction of more than 80 works of art in both live and silent auctions by Western New York's most accomplished artists.

Please contact Jim Wyman at 716-878-3739 or email for reservations or sponsorship opportunities.
