Artopia is a charity art fundraising event that benefits Big Bend Cares. Local and regional artists donate their artwork for this event, which includes paintings, sculptures, photography, arts and crafts, gift certificates, and more. Artopia features a silent auction with a wide range of starting bid prices, and a rousing live auction at the end of the evening. We hope to see you there! In its 21st year, Artopia has become a must-attend event, drawing approximately 750 participants per year. You don’t need to be an art critic to enjoy this lively event! As a matter of fact, there’s just about something for everyone—beautiful art at a reasonable price—in just about every form you can think of! Last year Artopia featured more than 350 pieces of artwork, including oils, pastels, acrylics, photography, scenography, sculpture, pottery, ceramics, jewelry, woodwork, mixed-media and much, much more. In addition to all of the artwork, local businesses and individuals donate gift certificates or other goodies that you can bid on. We will also have live entertainment, including demonstrations by some of our donating artists. Hors d'oeuvres are included with this ticket purchase, and Artopia will have several cash bars open throughout the night. More information about the event can be found on our website and Facebook event page. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Caitlin Steiner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
