Benefit Auction Dream Collections

What a wonderful event the Benefit Auction is! We have the opportunity to look at and consider purchasing, hundreds of artworks created by artists at varying levels of their careers. By now many of you have heard about the “Dream Collections” created by SAQA members from the Auction Donations.

A Dream Collection is a set of 6 artworks, from the current auction, that someone has identified as a meaningful selection. Collections are based on color, theme, techniques used, anything really. Or the collection could simply be based on that elusive emotional response generated when someone responds to a work of art.

Most people find it a challenge to narrow their Dream Collection to only 6 works of art, but by asking for this narrowing of focus, we really see what appeals to each specific individual.

“Groves of Trees”  curated by Trina Stephenson gives us a look at just a few interpretations of natures magnificence.
