disjecta art auction.

The Disjecta Art Auction is happening this Saturday here in Portland. I am absolutely thrilled to be part of it, and in the company of such artists. Please join us, enjoy food, drinks and art, and help support this fantastic organization.  All of the details are included below. I hope to see you there!
November 12, 2011 – 7:00 – 11:00 pm
$20 in advance at
$30 at the door
Ages 21+ / Hosted Bar! 
In the last twelve months, 16,327 visitors have made their way through the doors of Disjecta Interdisciplinary Art Center to participate in performances, events and exhibitions. On Saturday, November 12 beginning at 7PM, we’re looking for 300 more as Disjecta unveils the newest works for sale at Portland’s most exciting art auction. The event, Disjecta’s only annual fundraiser, will include a silent auction, a live auction led by MC extraordinaire AC Dickson, music, a hosted bar and hors d’oeuvres. Money raised at the event will go toward funding Disjecta’s contemporary art programming. 
Disjecta is grateful to the 54 artists who have contributed pieces in support our mission and vision this year. In addition to the amazing works from the artists above, a signed and numbered series of prints by artist Peter Halley—who will be showing at Disjecta in January 2012 as part of the Curator-in-Residence program (see below)—will be available for purchase at the auction.*
Guests at the auction can expect delicious libations provided by House Spirits, Deschutes Brewery, and drinking vinegars by Pok Pok Som. Tasty treats have been generously donated by Firehouse, Olympic Provisions and Vibrant Table. Additional donations have been graciously provided by Framing Resource, Interstate Special Events, Letterpress PDX, Plus Visuals, and Sign Wizards.
Select works available for pre-bidding online at
Advance tickets for the event can be purchased at
Silent Auction 7:00 – 10:00 pm
Live Auction Begins 8:30 pm
*(The Halley prints are not part of the auction proper, have a set price and will be available for delivery by the Holidays. The funds raised from the print sale go directly to support the Curator-in-Residence program.)
