The 7th Annual Transformer Silent Auction & Benefit Party

The 7th Annual Transformer Silent Auction & Benefit Party  

November 13, 2010 7 – 10pm 
The Mexican Cultural Institute
2829 16th Street NW

Innovative, experimental, diverse, and hip – Transformer is at the nexus of DC's cultural scene.
Transformer's Annual Auction is an ideal way to begin or expand your art collection while connecting with a smart, sophisticated audience. This very special, one-night only event features an impressive array of over 150 artworks in a variety of mediums, dimensions and prices by a diverse mix of emerging and established artists. In addition to a range of works by many leading DC based artists, Transformer is introducing new national and international visual talent to Auction guests this year. The Auction is taking place again this year at the beautiful and historic Mexican Cultural Institute.

Transformer's Annual Auction is also supported by a Host Committee of Washington's cultural leaders and patrons. Chaired this year by Transformer Board Members Shigeko Bork, Kate Damon, and Izette Folger, the Auction Host Committee helps to underwrite tickets costs for the over 100 artists that will attend the event. As a thank you for this support, Host Committee members are invited to a special October 13, 2010 thank you reception hosted by the Auction Chairs Mirella & Dani Levinas, featuring a sneak preview of works that will be featured in the Auction. To join the Host Committee of this year's Auction, please contact Alison Konecki, Development & Commmunity Outreach Coordinator at alison@transformergallery.org for additional details.

Join the Host Committee today to secure advance tickets to the event and help underwrite the attendance cost of nearly 100 participating artists. An Individual Auction ticket is $175 if received by 11.1.10; tickets are $200 after this date*.

Proceeds from The 7th Annual Transformer Silent Auction & Benefit Party will match recent grant awards, directly supporting artists throughout the 2010/2011 exhibition season, including: artist honoraria, travel and accommodations, exhibition material costs, and related programming support.

*Attendance is on a first paid, first secured basis – space is not guaranteed. All tickets must be purchased in advance of the Auction night. Tickets will not be sold at the event.
