Summary of the Event

• A silent auction featuring artwork donated by local artists. We ask that no piece be larger than roughly 8”x10”. There is no requirement to frame artwork. The Society will have a limited number of canvases available for those who need one.

• All media: painting, photographs, collages, mixed media, fabric, sculpture, jewelry, etc. are welcome!

• Works of all shapes are encouraged, so long as they stay within the 8”x10” guidelines.

• To encourage multiple bids, all works will start at $50 with minimum bid increments of $25.

• This event typically draws between 150 and 200+ people; it is a great opportunity to showcase your work to the community!

If you are interested and able to participate contact LHS Visitor Services Coordinator Sean Kunic by April 17th at the latest. Sean can be reached at or 860 567 4501

Please drop off artwork for the auction by May 1st at the Litchfield Historical Society (7 South Street).
