We’re Going Virtual!
Save the date for the
ONLINE Art Off the Wall Event:
December 3- 6, 2020
Join us for this unique opportunity to purchase an original 5 x 7” piece of artwork for just $20.
Hundreds of 5 x 7” sized original pieces of artwork will be for sale online to support the Carnegie Art Center.
Each piece is donated by award-winning, local and emerging artists committed to supporting arts programming within our community.
This year’s silent auction will also be online and will feature “cigar box art” by more than 30 local artists!
About the “Art Off the Wall” event:
In 2015, a group of volunteers organized this event in order to raise money so we can re-open the doors at the Carnegie Art Center. Since that initial year, the event has evolved into a large-scale fundraising initiative to support the Center and allow us to provide high quality arts programming for the community.
At the event, we sell hundreds of 5x7″ artworks that were donated by national, regional and local artists for $20 each. It’s a great time to gather (virtually) and reflect on the wonderful memories of when the building was home to the North Tonawanda Public Library (est. 1905) then the Carnegie Art Center. (since 1975).
This year, we need your support more than ever!
