The University of Oklahoma School of Art and Art History along with the Visual Art Student Association invite you to the annual VASA Art Auction on Friday, Nov. 21 from 6-9 p.m. in the Lightwell Gallery at the School of Art and Art History, 520 Parrington Oval. The event is free and open to the public.
The Visual Art Student Association is a registered OU student organization with a mission to support students in expanding their creative experience through fine art related trips, speakers and events that facilitate interaction with creative people. The VASA Art Auction is an annual event organized by its members that invites School of Art and Art History students and faculty to donate their artwork for a public auction, which will benefit the organization. The auction offers guests a chance to bid on original artworks. Opening bids will range from $1 to $5. Available works range from small-scale drawings, prints, and ceramic pieces to larger scale paintings and mixed media items.
“This event gives students a chance to showcase their artwork within a broader scale, while also allowing the public a chance to purchase student and faculty work,” said VASA president Shane Jensen. “It is the hope of VASA to promote the arts at the University and within the local community. The auction also promotes the individual talents of the OU School of Art & Art History students and faculty that donate.”
The event is free to attend and open to the public. Visitors will have an opportunity to view the exhibition from 6-6:30 p.m. and auction will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. All proceeds from the auction benefit the Visual Arts Student Association (VASA).
