Virtual Art Auction

THANK YOU! For your support.


You helped us raise over $5,000 during our online art auction this July!  This money will help us with about 1.5 months of overheads to keep the art center alive until we can safely hold in-person classes.

If you missed out and still want to donate, we are always open to donations. Thank you!


On March 16,  we were forced to temporarily close our doors to protect students, families, and staff from the spread of the COVID-19. Nearly 200 students (5-18 years old) were left waiting for the return of their favorite afterschool classes in fine art and digital art.  Wine and Paint nights were put on hold.  NWAC instructors and leaders quickly responded by creating online art classes designed to keep students connected and creating art from home during the quarantine.

NWAC has always supported local artists and we would love to showcase their art, promote their work and hopefully fundraise to help keep NWAC going thru the end of the year.


The auction is a non-themed, online exhibition representing a wide range of artistic expression in all media. All artists will be celebrated on a professional platform.   Artwork may be used in this auction or a future auction. Please consider donating a piece that best represents your work.

Submissions are closed for this auction, however, we have another virtual auction being planned for the end of the year for which we could use donations!
