Thank you, Juan Islas(e-Vision 1 Productions), for your continued support in capturing the event!
Thanks to all Newspring supporters and friends who came out for the 2019 Student Art Auction at the A.D. Players George Theater. Each student was so proud to show their artwork and visit with guests. $9,350 was raised from the art sales with all proceeds going directly to the students.
How The Silent Auction Works
Original paintings and 3-dimensional designs created by students from Spring Branch are featured at the auction. Over 230 pieces were submitted, with the very best being selected for the auction event. Student artists will be on hand to visit about their artwork. The auction provides a terrific opportunity for each student to be recognized for their talents and experience the marketplace at work. Newspring created the Student Art Auction to encourage students to remain in school and utilize their God-given talents. Speaking to auction guests and having their families see the value of their artwork are additional benefits of the event.
Proceeds from the sale of the artwork go directly to the student. Your purchase of one or more works of original art serves as a tangible reminder of the importance of education and furthering their artistic abilities.
The auction will begin at 6:00pm and conclude at 8:00pm. You must register as a bidder at the check-in table and receive a bidder number. Visit each artist and view their artwork! Enter your bid using your assigned number. Check back frequently! Payment and pick up of the artwork will begin 15-20 minutes after the auction closes. Payment methods include cash, checks and credit/debit cards. Winners who are unable to remain through the pick-up time will be contacted to make arrangements for payment and art pickup.
