Collector's Choice is the Maryland Federation of Art's most important and popular fundraiser. Once again Annapolis Subaru is our generous sponsor for the 31st annual event that's being held Sunday, October 28 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Annapolis Subaru, 149 Old Solomon's Island Road, Annapolis. www.annapolissubaru.com
In case you've never participated in Collector's Choice, as patron or donating artist, here's how it works. Member artists donate their treasured art works, which can be worth as much as $2000. These are featured in a preview at the Circle Gallery during the week before the event (October 19 through the 26th) to showcase the artwork and give ticket holders an opportunity to rank their choices and to tempt new collectors.
Each $160 ticket gives the ticket bearer and a guest an evening featuring a sumptuous buffet of fine food and drink donated by area chefs and restaurants, and best of all, the chance to take home your favorite artwork to add to your collection. After a chance to review and rank the artwork and enjoy the buffet-bar, the raffle begins.
It's a fast-paced evening as ticket numbers are randomly drawn and ticket holders claim their art choice. Those with numbers drawn first have the widest selection to choose from. As the number of available artworks shrinks, collector and artist alike get revved up, wondering who will be chosen next. It's an evening of fun and chance!
Why is this event so popular? For collectors, it's a great way to spend a Sunday evening enjoying good food and drink, and having the chance to take home a treasured work of art. For artists, there's a unique way to meet and connect with art collectors. Everybody wins!
