We are also doing a silent Charity Auction to raise money for breast cancer research at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Charity items are NOT part of the Art Show Contest nor will the artist receive any money from sold pieces. ALL proceeds will go to the charity. Please email the Art Show if you would like to donate anything to the Charity Auction.
