Lanesboro Arts hosted it's third annual Online Fall Auction from November 11th to November 19th, 2022. Thanks to everyone who participated this year, we were able to raise over $7,500 to support our multidisciplinary arts programming!
The third online Lanesboro Arts Fall Auction ran from Friday, November 11th to Saturday, November 19th. This online benefit event helps support Lanesboro Arts’ nationally-acclaimed year-round arts programming with the ease of participating from home. Participants were able to view the art and bid on items throughout the entire auction period.
Bidding opened: Friday, November 11th at 12:00 p.m. CST
Bidding closed: Saturday, November 19th at 12:00 p.m. CST
The Auction featured one-of-a-kind art pieces from talented regional artists, unique experiences from local businesses, and more! This collection had something for everyone and was perfect for the start of the gift-giving season, or for adding to your personal art collection. Available pieces included paintings from Kim Gordon and Susan Soloman; Photo-Impressionist work from Ron Germondson and Jamie Heiden; mixed media pieces from Diane Knight and Bebe Keith; wearable art from Lori Monson Kunes and Ian Baldry; wood pieces from Jerry Ritter and Roger Meyer; jewelry from Bridget Clark and Shelly Thrall; and so much more! There will be tickets and vouchers from the likes of Eagle Bluff, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Four Daughters Vineyard, the Guthrie Theatre, the St. Paul Saints.

New this year, Lanesboro Arts hosted a Fundraiser social hour at Sylvan Brewing to close out the Auction and usher in our Reach for the Arts fundraising campaign! Thank you to everyone who joined us on November 18th from 4:30 to 6:30 (right before the Lehto & Wright concert at the St Mane!) for an evening in celebration and support for the arts and art making in Lanesboro. There was food from El Sueno food truck, live music from River Crossing, art activities for the whole family, and, of course, craft beer from Sylvan Brewing.
