The auction has been extended and will conclude the day of the Golf Tournament, so be sure to click the link and visit the Golf Tournament Online Art Auction by Robeson Art Guild | BetterWorld and get your bids in.  You can place your bids online easily and securely.

It’s Alive! In a Good Way!

The Golf Tournament Online Art Auction is Alive and well and Open for Public viewing right now! Visit early, browse the items, and plan your bidding strategy. We will be adding more items, too, over the week as new items come in! And, of course, check in on those unique pieces that catch your eye, and your bids!

Artists, Hurry, Just Days Left…

Golf Tournament Online Auction

Time’s a-ticking! Please select at least two of your works for the Online Auction and bring them to the Guild House no later than Friday, May 13, so they can be photographed and uploaded to the online album for patrons to study and bid! Don’t forget to include your brief biography and the title, value, and dimensions of each work. Don’t be shy! You don’t want to miss this opportunity to let our community learn about you and your work.

The auction will be online beginning about a week before and conclude on the day of the Golf Tournament, May 21st.  We are working with BetterWorld.org to ensure that bidders see all auction items clearly, can place their bids online securely, and that the auction concludes smoothly at the Golf Tournament, with the artwork available for pickup.  A link to the online gallery link to share with your friends and patrons will be provided to you so you can get the word out and help make this another successful fundraiser! 

Last year, we sold more than 50 pieces with every artist selling and this year we hope to do the same or better.  You should set a minimum price and then let the magic of bidding “wars” drive the process. We look forward to success for our artists and the Guild.  We also look forward to making our patrons very happy.

A Sad Loss

Richard Monroe, holding Chamber of Commerce Plaque, stands next to Nila chamberlain at the ribbon cutting. Grand Opening Robeson Art Guild, October 28, 2021

It is painful to write that Richard Monroe, a founding Board member of the Robeson Art Guild, had a massive stroke and died this afternoon, March 22, 2022. It is difficult to imagine life without Richard. His love of teaching and his willingness to share and encourage growth and success have been a major factor in the lives of many people in Robeson County. We have never heard a negative comment about Richard from any of his former students. Yes, we did hear a few gripes from the establishment about his impatience with “Hurry up and wait!’ He was a dynamic leader and had great vision for Robeson County. Let’s hope that the seeds of wisdom that he “planted” will grow for our great Robeson County and all of its diverse talents and peoples.
