How it works

Artists are asked to donate one piece for the Spring for Art fine art sale at a suggested price point of $50, $100, $150, $200, or $250. Those who donate receive a FREE ticket to Spring for Art and the ability to purchase an add on ticket for only $25 for a partner or friend. If the art does not sell at Spring for Art, Associated Artists keeps all donated work to use for further fundraising activities, all of which benefit Associated Artists programming throughout the year.

If you are interested in donating artwork, please contact Bryce Hauser for more details at info@associatedartists.org.

It takes an army of volunteers to pull off Spring for Art! 

We need people to help set up the event, pick up silent auction donations, help out at the event, help with clean up and checking out art. There are big jobs and small, creative jobs and routine — something for every taste. Volunteering is a great way to meet fellow artists and have fun while supporting Associated Artists!

Those who volunteer four hours or more receive a free ticket to the event. This also includes spouses, partners, friends, etc. Volunteer sign up is available online.

Please email director@AssociatedArtists.org to sign up for volunteer shifts and watch our member emails for details.
