Ah Haa Auction Theme of 19th annual event based on Bond: “License to Create”

First there was Sean Connery. Now there’s Jeb Berrier.

Jeb Berrier is Telluride’s Bond. Never shaken, sure to stir as he hosts the 19th Annual Art Auction for Telluride’s Ah Haa School for the Arts.

New this year, the auction begins Thursday, July 21, 5 – 7 p.m. Billed as an Intimate Live Auction of 4 Works of Art, the evening includes a reception with champagne and canapes, artist talks, the mini-auction,  music, and a  preview (and pre-bid) of Friday night’s silent and live auction line-up. With “buy now” privileges for each of the 4 works, this is an evening not to be missed. (Admissions is $45 and includes entry into the Friday night event.)

The Main Event is Friday night, July 22, starting at 5 p.m. for the reception and silent auction of art objects (paintings, drawings, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, furniture, glass, etc.), plus goods and services. The live auction begins at 7 p.m. All at the Ah Haa School for the Arts, 300 South Townsend Avenue, Telluride. “License to Create” features over 200 items of original art, services and trips donated by the region’s artists, businesses and supporters of the Ah Haa.

The auction is Ah Haa’s largest and most important fundraising event of the year. Proceeds support the school’s operations, especially programming and workshops.
