Twenty-First Annual Box Art Auction Benefiting East End Hospice
The time-honored tradition of the Box Art Auction benefiting East End Hospice will take place on Saturday, August 27th.
This annual highlight of the late summer season will again occur at St. Luke’s Church Hoie Hall in East Hampton (18 James Lane).
80+ artists who have answered the call to create memorable boxes for this anniversary auction are nine artists who have participated every year since the event’s inception and others who are participating for the first time.
Artists are given small donated cigar and wine boxes — using the box inside and out as a canvas or base. With styles ranging from traditional landscapes to abstract art, this year’s art forms are ceramics, sculpture, painting, collage, assemblage, and needlework on fabric.
Leading up to the benefit, the boxes can be previewed at Hoie Hall on Wednesday, August 24th, and Thursday, August 25th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Wednesday, August 24th, from 5-7 p.m., the public is invited to a “Meet the Artists” preview reception at Hoie Hall.
Completed boxes can also be viewed on the Hospice website, click here.
Absentee bids on boxes can be made if you are unable to attend, please click here for the Absentee Form, thank you, You can call in bid ahead of time or email form.
At the benefit on August 27th, a Silent Auction will begin at 4:30 p.m., and the live auction will begin at 5:45 pm, with Lucas Hunt as Auctioneer. Wine and hors d’oeuvres are included in the $100 benefit ticket price.
All proceeds will benefit East End Hospice, which provides care for terminally ill patients, their families, and loved ones living on the North and South Forks of Long Island, including the Eastern Suffolk County townships of Brookhaven. The Box Art Auction benefits residents of the Town of East Hampton communities.
We look forward to celebrating our honoree and seeing you in person at our 2022 Box Art Auction.
