Celebrating KVIE Public Television’s 32 years of creating an accessible venue to bring art into the homes of Northern Californians, the 2013 KVIE Art Auction will showcase more than 250 works of art by emerging, well-known and world-renown Northern California artists.
KVIE’s art curator, D Neath, today announced that two Grass Valley artists who submitted their art to the annual juried competition were chosen to be included in KVIE’s Art Auction collection.
The two pieces accepted into the auction are: Mim Meakin’s “Waterfall” (airs 8:30 p.m. Sept. 21 ); and Ed Hensley’s “Pomegranate #2” (airs 2 p.m. Sept. 21).
In addition to the juried art, the auction will also include works by master artists Eric Dahlin, Gary Pruner, Gregory Kondos, Kurt Fishback, Larry Welden, Mel Ramos, Sandy Delehanty, and Victoria Brooks.
Each artist’s work will be showcased in a live three-day auction broadcast on KVIE (ch. 6, check local listings) that starts Sept. 20 from 8 to 11 p.m. and continues Sept. 21-22 from noon to 10 p.m.
“This year’s winning artworks were chosen through an extensive, in-person jury process from almost 600 total entries,” said Neath. “The jurors did a beautiful job narrowing the collection and selecting the final award-winning works of art. When viewers tune in, they will agree the art is an outstanding reflection of the talent in our region.”
A complete list of artists juried into the collection is online at kvie.org/artauction. Images and information on every piece of art up for bid will launch in September.
This year’s auction is sponsored by Wells Fargo, The Niello Company, Mansour’s Oriental Rug Gallery, the Sacramento Bee and Warren G. Bender Co. Proceeds from the event and auction help support KVIE local productions and community outreach services.
