About Our Auction
Each year the MANA del Norte's silent auction raises between $3-5,000 and goes directly to our scholarship recipients. In a year that has brought on many obstacles and barriers to those we serve, funds from this auction are now more needed than ever. This auction features local items by northern New Mexican artists and jewelers.
Meet our 2020 Featured Artist: Tessa Ortiz y Fresquez
Tess is from the Espanola Valley and began sketching at the age of six. She began working on large oil paintings as a teen. Her artwork focuses on southwestern landscape, floral scenes, portraiture and capturing the unique essence and expressions of people actively working on their craft.
In our auction you will also find gift cards at a lower rate than the value, this concept was created in support of local business.
Happy Bidding, we hope that you find something that catches your eye!
