2020 Live Auction

Cardiff Town Center
2033 San Elijo Avenue, Cardiff, CA 92007
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 101 Artists’ Colony to defray the program expenses and help fund the Colony’s other community programs. Sales tax is added to the purchase price.
Silent bids may be placed beginning at the Unveiling Reception, and then by phone to (760) 473-5164 throughout the period the exhibit is on display along Coast Hwy 101 (March – May), right up to the Friday before the Live Auction which occurs on Sunday, June 14. Bid sheets will again be on display for silent bids until the auctioneer bangs the gavel starting 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 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 talent of the artists within our community. We appreciate their participation and your support in attending our events and purchasing their fine art pieces that look great in any venue!
