The Umbrella Arts Center in Concord continues its three-week, hybrid virtual/in-person spring celebration with the launch of Artfest Art Auction– the Center's largest ever, with more than 55 artists participating.
Diverse items ranging from paintings, sculpture and fiber art to jewelry, woodwork, and a rare bottle of 1989 Chateau Lafite Rothschild are up for auction, available for viewing at The Umbrella's Main Gallery by reservation, or online in a new 3D VR-enabled gallery tour.
In-person visits are limited capacity, require reservation online or through the Artfest App, following state guidelines and safety protocols. Starting May 1 and concluding with The Umbrella's virtual gala on May 15 at 9PM, all bidding will be conducted touchlessly via phone or web browser at http://Artfest.WeDoAuctions.com
The auction is part of The Umbrella's Artfest, an expansive series of virtual, asynchronous, and limited-capacity programs combining COVID-modified variations of several annual traditions – the Musketaquid Earth Day & Parade, Open Studios weekend, and the Artrageous Gala, among others – as well as outdoors and virtual performances, public art installations, a Kidstrack, and more.
