On Saturday, September 23rd, 2017 Sculpture Space will host its 28th Annual CHAIRity Art Auction at the Sculpture Space Studio, 12 Gates Street, in Utica’s historic Brewery District. This special evening features original works of art and functional objects created by national, international, regional and local artists, presented in both live and silent art auctions.
Many of the contributing artists are alumni of Sculpture Space’s internationally recognized artist-in-residency program. Since 1976, Sculpture Space has hosted over 520 visiting artists from 29 countries and 29 states that are as nearby as New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and as far away as Japan, Iran, Australia and China. Artists are invited to come and live in Utica for two months and create new work, explore novel techniques and materials and engage with artists from other states and countries, In turn, local and regional residents, business owners, artists and art lovers not only connects with these artists to gain insight into their creative process and inspiration, but also share their unique and global perspectives. When these artists return home, they become informal ambassadors; work created while in residence in Utica is subsequently exhibited in galleries, museums and sculpture parks around the world.
The live auction will include a wide variety of items including decorative sculpture, paintings, lamps, furniture, jewelry, and ceramics donated by international and local artists and artisans. The always-anticipated Earth Day collection, created from repurposed materials donated by Empire Recycling, will also be available for auction.
