WHAT IS A SILENT AUCTION? An auction is like a sale--people will have a chance to buy items that have been donated by artists. People have a chance of buying this item by making a bid, that is, they write an amount of money that they would be willing to pay on a sheet of paper near the art. Another person may come by and want the same item so he/she may offer more money, making a higher bid. At the end of the auction, the person with the highest bid goes home with the item.

Below are works of art that you can start bidding on now or you can bid at the event. Click on the images to see them enlarged. If you would like to make a bid now please e-mail hannah@drawbridge.com with your name, phone number, e-mail address, the title of the work you are bidding on and your bid amount. Bids must be made in $25 increments. For example, if a starting bid is $50 you must bid $75. Once it is $75 you must bid $100...and so on. Please bring your checkbook or cash as all art must be purchased the night of the event. Sorry, we do not take credit cards. All artists will donate 50% of the sale price of their piece to City Critters. Checks will be written out directly to City Critters and the artists so please be prepared to write 2 checks for each piece purchased. Sorry, but since you are receiving art from the transaction the IRS does not allow the charity portion to be tax deductible. However, feel free to make additional donations to the charity and those will be 100% deductible. CVB Gallery takes nothing. See you on October 27th!

Hi Carrie, it's Krissy. My website is www.crazedanimalart.com
Thank you for loving my art. I'd be more than happy to sell you some of my art or do a custom painting of a favorite animal for you.

Cynthia, The show was great! I loved it. Thank you so much for having me a part it.
