Collectors’ Event

The Collectors' Event provides seasoned and novice art collectors alike with a unique opportunity to acquire works of art while supporting the Art Museum and our community of artists. This high-energy auction for 100 pieces of artwork from local, regional and internationally known artists is available to the first 100 ticket buyers. Each ticket holder will go home with an original work of art or a limited-edition print valued at the price of the ticket—and many times much higher. Many of the contributing artists join our buyers for this lively evening at Myrtle Beach’s popular Collector’s Café & Gallery.

Interested in being a participating artist in this event for 2017?
This event is possible because generous artists donate their works. With the donation of an original piece of artwork (valued at $100 or more), artists not only help support the Art Museum but they also have the opportunity to network with art collectors and fellow artists as well as to increase exposure for themselves and their artwork on our website and social media outlets and in other promotional material. Donating artists receive free tickets for the Collectors’ Event.  For more information about becoming a participating artist please contact:
Liza Holian, Museum Services Coordinator
