43rd PBS KVIE Art Auction 2023
The 2023 Art Auction "Call for Artists" is now open (April 1 - May 31). Artists are encouraged to participate in the auction by donating one of your works. The event promotes tremendous publicity throughout Northern California – printed brochures and photos on the KVIE website, including a description. All works are on display to the public at the KVIE campus in Sacramento for a whole month in the late summer. The pinnacle of the auction is on air, where your work is shown on television, and the on-air talent narrates the artist and a description of the artwork and the background.

In April, our image hoped to inspire Dreams of Spring! Twenty-one members accepted the challenge. What a perfect way to start the season!
