The Garrison Art Center announces the Riverside Art Auction, benefiting Hudson Valley artists and Garrison Art Center on Saturday, May 11, with viewing and silent auction opening at 3:30 p.m., and the live auction to begin at 5 p.m. sharp.
The live auction will be under the tent down by the riverside with the usual festivities and refreshments during viewing, and the silent auction will be in The Riverside Galleries. The center is located at 23 Garrison’s Landing in Garrison. The live auction committee has selected a range of work from Hudson Valley artists who work in the traditional style of the Hudson River school of painting, as well as those who focus on modern landscape.
New this spring, artists, patrons and their families and friends can enjoy a sunset picnic on the banks of the Hudson, starting at 6:30 p.m. A French grill picnic will be prepared by Chef Pascal Graff of Garrison Café in Garrison and Brasserie Le Bouchon in Cold Spring. Picnickers can enjoy live music by Tiki Daddy with their Hawaiian-inspired music of the ’20s and ’30s. The silent auction will remain open until 8 p.m. The silent auction will run through May 19 at 5 p.m. Bids may be placed in person or by phone.
