The 2013 Auction
The Festival Auction and Financial Donations are the primary sources of funding for the festival. The Live Auction will occur on Friday, June 7 at the Berkley Center on Ocracoke Island (around the harbor near the Ocracoke Preservation Museum). Auction preview will be from 5:30-7:30 PM and the Auction will run from 7:30-9:00 PM.
A much-anticipated event, the art auction this year will focus on local artists—Ocracoke and the OBX. Dolores Gilbert is coordinating the auction. “We want to recognize local island fine artists and crafters,” she says about the focus of the auction. Participating artists will receive several perks from the festival, such as tickets and T-shirts.
Complimentary desserts will be offered to guests and a cash wine/beer bar will be available during the preview, 6:00-7:30. The auction will start promptly at 7:30 PM. Artwork offered will also be previewed on this webpage.
Interested artists should contact Dolores Gilbert at 202-288-9592, or, firstname.lastname@example.org.
