Contact: (304) 529-2701

The Huntington Museum of Art will conduct its 5th Annual Fine Art Auction fundraiser on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2020, at 2 p.m. as an online event. The more than 200 works included in the sale were supplied by private donors, living artists, as well as a number of galleries doing business with the museum. The museum is proud again to be partnering with Garth’s Auctioneers & Appraisers of Columbus, Ohio, for this event.

"This year’s Fine Art Auction will be an online event and we have gathered a great collection of works this year,” said HMA Executive Director Geoffrey K. Fleming. “Although bidding for this auction will take place online, we plan to have the artworks on display at the Huntington Museum of Art a few days in advance of the event for local patrons to see the works in person. There will also be an online catalog on invaluable.com where a photo of each work can be viewed.”

Visitors to HMA will be able to preview in person the items in the online Art Auction during regular hours on Oct. 29-31, 2020. Bidding on certain lots in the auction will start as low as $25. Regional artists whose work will be included in the sale are the noted cameo glass artist Kelsey Murphy and the late Marshall University art professor Stan Sporny.

Please note that the invaluable buyer's premium is 15% added to all successful bids.

“Like all arts institutions, many of HMA’s regular fundraisers have been canceled, which makes it harder for us to deliver enriching art experiences to the public. The art auction is one of the few we can still have safely,” Fleming said. “Please consider bidding in this year’s auction.”

A significant amount of proceeds from this fundraising event will benefit the Huntington Museum of Art. For more information on events at HMA, visit www.hmoa.org or call (304) 529-2701. HMA is fully accessible.
