Sunday, October 14, 2018:
Morning departure: We’ll meet our private coach and tour host Mickey Myers and Goodspeed & Bach trip director Deb Flanders. Depart for historic Rockport, Massachusetts, known for its miles of lovely beaches, boulder-strewn paths through woods and glades, and that uncommonly magical light that has inspired painters since Winslow Homer. Upon arrival enjoy lunch together at a local restaurant. 2:00 pm We’ll hear a pre-concert talk by CMS of Lincoln Center. 3:00 pm The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center performs at Shalin Liu Performance Center. Enjoy the concert in this extraordinary building – with its spectacular views and superb acoustics. The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS) is known for the extraordinary quality of its performances, its inspired programming, and for setting the benchmark for chamber music worldwide: no other chamber music organization does more to promote, to educate, and to foster a love of and appreciation for the art form. After the concert we’ll check into our hotel. After freshening up we’ll dine together at local restaurant (transfer by bus).
Meals included: Lunch, Dinner

2018 Art Auction On-line

Bryan Memorial Gallery is excited to again offer an On-Line Art Auction in 2018. In the fall of 2017, the gallery had its first on-line auction. It was so successful we will do it again this year. So many people participated in the on-line auction later last fall. The auction is a fun way to acquire art and a wonderful way to help our non-profit gallery raise funds to support its exhibits and programs.

We hope that you will be part of this encore auction to help achieve the fund raising goals for  Bryan Memorial Gallery. The sales are on-line only with the work going to the highest bidder.

The number of artists and pieces are anticipated to be higher than last year, and as word spreads, the number of biidders is also expected to increase. So bid early and stake out your claim.

NEW THIS YEAR! We will also be selling tickets to raffle off a painting by none other than Julie Y Baker Albright. Julie has been showing at the Bryan Memorial Gallery for many years and is a perennial favorite. Her work stands apart for its beauty and artistic quality. Tickets are just $5 each and available online through the bidding platform.

The on-line bidding begins Saturday, October 20 and concludes at 5PM Saturday, November 17. Artists will start submitting works immediately, and as they come in you can see them on the auction platform. Track your favorite artists so when bidding starts you are ready!

You can find all the information and links on the auction page click here.
