Make the Silent Auction your first stop of the ARTWALK 2015 experience!
The ARTWALK 2016 Silent Auction offers a snapshot of the entire ARTWALK event in one place. Artists from official ARTWALK locations all over town donate artwork, so a walk through the Auction can tip visitors to the exhibits they don’t want to miss. Additional donations by collectors and artists from all over the region fill the Silent Auction with a rich variety of treasures and surprises that help make it a fascinating exhibit in its own right.
The organizers of ARTWALK not only provide one of Alpine’s most entertaining weekends each year and an economic boost to the city and its artists, they also give the Alpine Public Library the opportunity to raise sorely needed funds while contributing an important piece of the ARTWALK event.
The Alpine Public Library is an independent nonprofit organization. We receive about 25% of our yearly income from the City of Alpine and Brewster County (as opposed to the 94% public funding received by most County or City libraries). Another 10% comes from private grants. The remaining 65% comes from individual donations, Friends of the Alpine Public Library memberships, book sales, and fundraising events like the ARTWALK Silent Auction.
Galeria Sibley is the new auction location this year. The Buy It Now table offers a chance to pick something up without waiting for the bidding to close.
Bidding begins Friday and Saturday at 10 a.m. The auction closes for the night on Friday at 10 p.m., and bidding stops for good at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday. At 9:00 p.m. Saturday, the results will be announced and winners can pick up their items.
