This year SGCI features a silent auction to raise funds for our programs including conference panels, student scholarships, grants, and residencies for our members. The auction draws hundreds of artists and art lovers from our community to bid on sixteen selected artworks donated by our members and awardees.

The auction opens on Wednesday night, April 4th and will close at 5 pm on Friday, April 6th. All members and the general public are invited to bid on artwork. Bidding is made by adding a new bid, contact information, and signature. At the closing bell on Friday the 6th, the highest bidder becomes the winner.


Winners will be announced on Saturday, April 7th,  at 9 am at the Awards ceremony. Winners can pick up their prints at open portfolio directly after the ceremony until 12 pm.
