Event Calendar Box Art Auction

Twenty-Second 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 26th.

This annual highlight of the late summer season will again occur at St. Luke’s Church Hoie Hall in East Hampton (18 James Lane).

90+ artists who have answered the call to create memorable boxes for this year’s auction.

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 23rd, and Thursday, August 24th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Wednesday, August 23rd, 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. 

At the benefit on August 26th, 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.
