ArtBark Submissions

Thank you for considering a donation of your art, jewelry or fine crafts for the fourth annual ArtBark silent auction for the Animal Welfare Coalition of Northeastern New Mexico, which operates the Las Vegas animal shelter.

ArtBark will take place at the beautiful gallery at Highlands University’s Kennedy Alumni Hall. The artwork will be available for preview on November 17 and the auction will be November 18th from 4 to 7 p.m. Funds raised at the event go to support the AWC’s life-saving work with adoptions and the well-being of the region’s lost, stray and rescue animal population.

Final deadline for art submissions is November 15, however, if you wish to have your bio included in the program, your submission must be received by November 1st.  All submissions must be your own work.

You have the option of donating 50% or 100% of the purchase price to the AWC. Starting bids will be based on the piece’s stated value by the artist. Artists may suggest a starting bid, but the curator will make the final decision. A live auction of the most highly bid-on works will take place at the end of the evening.

If you have any questions, please contact Donna Rivas.
