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.

Saturday, Sept. 30, Noon - 10 PM
Sunday, Oct. 1, 10 AM - 8 PM
