Carolina Beach, NC – The Annual Carolina Beach Street Arts Festival Art Auction is scheduled for February 23, 2017 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm at the SeaWitch. This year’s theme is Mardi Gras and participants wearing mardi gras costumes will receive 5 extra raffle tickets. The event includes appetizers, music and opportunity to bid on artwork for artists around the country.
Cost for advance tickets is $10 which includes admission and one complimentary adult beverage. Tickets are also available at the door for $5 for admission. Amazing original fine art and fine crafts will be available for both silent and live auction. Tim Perry of Island Auction Co. is a professional auctioneer who will bring lots of fun to this glamorous event.
According to Jillian Boivin, president of hosting organization Island Arts and Culture Alliance, “The art auction is our major fund raiser for the annual Carolina Beach Street Arts Festival. The Festival brings fine artists and crafters from around the region to show and sell their artwork.”
Artwork made at the interactive festivals, as well as, pieces donated from local artists will be available at the auction. Skip Sprauge, owner of Tip Top Frames and vice president of the Alliance said, “We have held the silent auction dinner for 3 years and this year we thought a live auction would be fun along with our Mardi Gras theme to make it a great night out.” Two large original paintings that were painted by the community at last year’s festival and directed by Jan Feury, local artist, will be available along with artwork provided by more than 20 artists.
The festival is the flag ship event for the Island Arts and Culture Alliance (IACA), a non-profit, community-based organization. IACA’s mission is to promote awareness, understanding and appreciation of the literary, visual and performing arts in the island community, in order to enhance the quality of life in our area.
