“You helped make our art auction a huge success! Everyone that attended the Auction found you to be extremely entertaining. Whether people bought art or not, everyone thought that this was a fun and informative evening. People are still talking about how charming and entertaining you were. Everyone is already marking their calendars for next year’s art auction. I’m sure this is going to be an annual event since our first attempt was so successful. Our profits from this Art Auction are over $7,000!” - Cathy Ilani, Summit
The collection for your auction will be hand picked from the thousands of elegantly framed pieces of art in our inventory. We believe that no matter what your taste, everyone will be satisfied with the wide variety.
WHAT WE DO
ART WE CARRY
FOR YOUR CAUSE
“I have received compliments from many friends who were able to attend. Everyone seemed to be pleased with the equality, and prices of the art. Many of us walked away with beautiful treasures. Thank you again, for a fun weekend and a fantastic fund raiser.” - Becky Cyr, Programs Chair person, Officers’ Wives Club
The art auction is easy, fun to plan, and a great way to raise funds for any group without a ton of work or volunteers. It is a financially successful, exciting event for all who attend, and we make it easy!
For more than 35 years, State of the Art has devoted its energy to bringing this unique fundraising idea to organizations just like yours, all over the country. You provide the place and the people, and we do the rest!
With over 35 years of experience, we at State of the Art have learned the “ins” and “outs” of the art auction trade. Every auction done by State of the Art is custom designed and tailored to the particular needs of the sponsoring organization, because we simply do not believe in “standard” auctions. Geographic locations, income levels, and interests are carefully considered, and we present your organization with a selection of art that is without comparison. With these elements, one of our experienced art auction coordinators can design a show that’s right for your specific organization.
WHO WE ARE
State of the Art
We believe if you put a name on an event, it must be a success. The entire project must run professionally from inception to the auctioneer’s “good night”. When we conduct an art auction, we feel genuinely obligated to each and every organization.
