Welcome to Art with Heart - A Virtual Art Auction! In celebration of Creative York's 30th Birthday, we are bringing together 100+ of our artist friends as we salute the arts with a Virtual Art Auction. Our artist friends have been kind enough to donate their pieces with either 50% or 100% of the sale proceeds to benefit Creative York and our mission of arts education within York County. 2020 has been a most challenging year for all of us and this platform helps us to give back to our artist friends by virtually promoting their work. Along with the pieces of art that are available for auction, you will find images of additional works of art done by each artist, each artist's bio and links to their social media platforms.
Bidding begins Thursday, October 22nd at 10 AM and will run through Friday, October 30th at 9 PM. Please register to begin the bidding process. If you are subsequently outbid on a piece by another lover of art, you will be notified via text message or email (whichever method you choose at registration) and given the opportunity to submit another bid. Click here to learn how to claim your art!
Sponsorships of Ginger (you might become her Furever Parents) are also available for purchase. Ginger is "The American Dog" creation of well known artist Dale Rogers. Her measurements are 3'H X 4'W X 6"D and is valued at $1,350. In exchange for your Sponsorship of Ginger, you will receive a raffle ticket and recognition in our monthly newsletter. Sponsorship purchases will end at 6:30PM on Friday, October 30th with the drawing taking place at 7PM. The raffle items include "Ginger" OR a $500 shopping spree at Creative York towards the purchase of art (sponsored by Kaletta's, York's Urban Elegant Boutique).
As part of our mission of arts education within the York Community, we, in partnership with The York County Food Bank, the Spanish-American Multicultural Resource Center and a few local churches, distributed art kits to children throughout the Summer months and into the Fall. We look forward to continuing with the distribution of art kits and can do so through your generous Sponsorship of Art Kits.
The arts foster creativity, goodness and beauty. Art brings us joy, helps us to connect with others, and helps us to express our values. The arts are a fundamental component of healthy communities, strengthening them socially, educationally and economically., benefits that are particularly important in difficult social and economic times.
Creative York inspires creativity in the community through arts education, gallery experiences and outreach programs. We offer programs for ages 3 to 103 at our facility and throughout York County.
