Project 31 raises more than $216,000 for student experience

 

Tuesday, March 29, 2016 - 4:00am

A cheer went up each time auctioneer Stephen Ranger’s gavel slammed the podium at the seventh annual Project 31 fundraising auction. More than half of the 46 lots in the live auction were sold for over their estimated value. A work by faculty member and alumnus Nicolas Pye sold for $9,000, the top bid of the evening!

For the first time, a silent auction of works by medal winners of the past decade took place after the main event, giving a record number of guests another opportunity to take home art by talented alumni.

Proceeds of the event go to student bursaries, scholarships and awards, studio materials, the Dorothy H. Hoover Library, the Florence Program, the Student Gallery and more.

Thanks to all of the participating artists for generously donating their work and for their heartfelt support:

Barbara Astman, Teresa Aversa, Omar Badrin, Gillian Batcher, Heidi Berton, Philippe Blanchard, Monica Bodirsky, Kotama Bouabane, Maggie Broda, Ian Carr-Harris, Shea Chang, Hudson Christie, Amanda Clyne, Nicole Collins, Danny Custodio, Cathy Daley, Paul Dallas, Theresa Duong, Scott Everingham, Mitchell Fenton, Michelle Forsyth, Simon Glass, Catherine Heard, April Hickox, Kyle Hittmeier, Gillian Iles, Mark Jaroswicz, Anda Kubis, Chris Lange, Ginette Legaré, Antonio Lennert, Jennifer Long, Erin Loree, Greg Mably, Rachel MacFarlane, Linda Martinello, Wrik Mead, Faye Mullen, Amanda Nedham, Robert Nicholls, Sarah Nind, James Olley, Connor Olthuis, Luke Painter, Meghan Price, Nicholas Pye, Stuart Reid, John Scott, Christina Sealey, Rosalie Sharp, John Shipman, Sara Sniderhan, Vladimir Spicanovic, Peter Sramek, Jennie Suddick, Derek Sullivan, Veronika Szkudlarek, Gary Taxali, Elaine Waisglass, George A.
