Annual Art Auction

Save the Date!
Saturday, November 2 / 2019

The 37th Annual Art Auction will be here before you know it. Hopefully you’ve joined us for an auction in the past, but if not here’s a quick rundown: the event serves as the premier photography auction in North Carolina, as well as The Light Factory’s signature fundraising event. The funds raised from the auction account for one-third of our operating revenue, which allows us to follow through on our mission of inspiring and empowering our community through photography education and exhibitions. Holding the auction takes contributions from so many places: the generous donations of our sponsors, the beautiful work offered by supportive artists, the winning bids of auction attendees, and countless hours from thoughtful volunteers. While the auction grants members of the Charlotte community the chance to purchase a piece of art that they will treasure for years to come, it also helps The Light Factory with a variety of important endeavors, such as showcasing emerging and established artists in our exhibition series, exposing youth to the power of self-expression through our outreach programs, and providing educational opportunities for those hoping to hone their craft. Mark your calendars now for this can’t-miss event.
