Special Event  |  2012 Art Auction & Gala

Friday, September 21, 2012, 6–11 pm


This year, for the first time since we moved into the new museum building, our annual Art Auction and Gala will happen right at home—your Burchfield Penney Art Center. Don’t miss what promises to be a special evening of surprises. Celebrate with friends, tour the galleries, and enjoy live music, performances, delicious food, cocktails, and wine. And while you’re reveling, add to your collection, bidding in the auction on works created by some of our finest artists.


While you’re enjoying cocktails and a selection of hors d’oeuvres, bidding will be open on the silent auction items. A formal dinner will follow, featuring specialties from around New York State prepared by Oliver’s. Spirits and New York State wines are generously provided by The Premier Group.

More than 80 of the region’s most accomplished artists are featured in this year’s Art Auction. The majority of the works will be part of a Silent Auction, while selected works will be part of a Live Auction led by Cash Cunningham.
