About Our Auction

Auction & FUNdraiser for ARTECH
CHAIR-ity — will showcase the work of local artists while raising money for ARTECH – a local non-profit art organization. Local artists are invited to paint our solid wooden chairs to be auctioned in the online “CHAIR-ity” scheduled for September 1-11, 2020 with an outdoor reception, exhibition of chairs and final bidding on Saturday, September 12 from noon to 4 pm.
ARTECH had to cancel the 2020 Reno Art Fest due to Covid 19 and de-install the Reno Playa Art Park due to development. We are hoping to raise funds to produce a new Playa Park with art from the 2021 Burning Man event, continue the Reno Art Fest and open our studio to artists and students for classes and workshops.
These unique chairs are heavy solid wood and ready to be used as a canvas for artists to put unique and distinctive twists on them. Artists will have the option to receive 30-50% of the auction price with the remainder going to ARTECH.
