The Unveiling Reception is the “reveal” that premiers the exhibit (it occurs shortly after 12pm after a group countdown). Seeing this many paintings unveiled and on display for the first time is a spectacular event not to be missed.

The site of the 2017 unveiling will be at the Leichtag Foundation property in Encinitas, the former home of Ecke Ranch floriculture business. More than 200 guests attended last year, including city and county luminaries, artists and art lovers from all walks of life. The unveiling is the art event of the year and it is FREE.

Live Auction

Event details:

Sunday, May 21st Reception at 1:30pm / Auction begins at 2pm
Cardiff Town Center
Birmingham and San Elijo

Professional auctioneer, Rich Houk, volunteers his services each year for the live auction. This is a free event open to the public. It is so much fun! Come to the auction to meet our artists, as well as to have the opportunity to purchase fine art at a fraction of its true value.

How do I place a bid?

The minimum starting bid is $150. Each artist keeps 50% of the sale proceeds with the other 50% going to either 101 Artists’ Colony or Leucadia 101. Sales tax is added to the purchase price.

Silent bids may be placed beginning at the Unveiling Reception, and then by phone to Leucadia 101 at (760) 436-2320 throughout the period the exhibit is on display along Coast Hwy 101 (February – May), right up to the morning of the Live Auction. Come to the auction to make sure you aren’t outbid on your favorite banners!

Program expenses are paid by 101 Artists’ Colony and Leucadia 101, with support from our sponsors. Each year, a number of artists designate their share of the proceeds to non-profit and/or charitable organizations. These one-of-a-kind pieces of original fine art demonstrate the scope of talented artists in our community. We appreciate your support in attending our events and purchasing these fine art pieces that look great in any venue!
