On October 25th, 2014, the Calvert Library Foundation will host its second Gala Art Auction to benefit all Calvert Library locations. An extravagant pre-auction “Taste of the Region” reception, with live musicians, and a review of the collection of art to be sold will begin at 7:00 PM, with the Auction starting at 8:00 PM. The professionally curated collection, including the works of many prominent international artists, as well as sports and music memorabilia, will be auctioned by an entertaining, professional auctioneer out of New York. Art values will accommodate a broad range of budgets. Tickets for the reception, wine tasting and the auction will be $15 before the auction and $20 at the door. There will be a cash bar. Tickets will be available at all Library locations, from Foundation Board and Auction Committee members, and through the Foundation website http://calvertlibraryfoundation.com.
The Foundation invites individuals and businesses to be Sponsors for the Gala Auction Fund (gifts to the Library of $1000 or more), donors for a select collection of local art and gifts to be sold during the main Auction, and advertisers for the Auction Program. All sponsors and donors will be prominently recognized unless anonymity is requested.
