MAC Art Auction Spokane
On behalf of the Board of the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture – better known throughout the Inland Northwest as “the MAC” – and the organizing committee, we are pleased to welcome you to MAC Art Auction Spokane 2012. At MAC Art Auction 2012, you’ll have the opportunity to acquire master works in two- and three-dimensions, in many media and of many subjects. And, provide essential financial support for the MAC’s arts mission: to foster appreciation for the arts, the aesthetic development of our visitors, and a vibrant cultural community for the Inland Northwest. MAC exhibitions feature the works of important regional artists – both historic and contemporary – and works from a collection of traditional and contemporary American Indian art, Inland Northwest masters, Northwest Modernism and Contemporary Art, and the famous WPA-era Spokane Art Center. This year, the largest art auction in the Inland Northwest moves to Spokane’s Historic Davenport Hotel, a setting as magnificent as the works of the region’s most notable artists. The Davenport was designed by noted architect Kirtland Cutter to “bring the world to Spokane,” with architectural features from Spain, France, Italy, England and Russia. First opened in 1914, the Davenport was the region’s business, civic and social place to meet. Restored to its original grandeur and re-opened in 2002, the Davenport remains an essential Spokane experience – and a place to re-imagine the gritty days when mines, timber and the railroads promised adventure and fortune. We know you’ll enjoy the Auction’s elegant and lively celebration of artists and their art, a traditionally fine Davenport Hotel dinner with jazz accompaniment, and the opportunity to acquire selected artworks in the oral and silent auctions. We also believe that the memory of your experience will bring you back again next year. Meantime, we thank you and wish you successful bidding! Forrest B. Rodgers Executive Director Dr. James Harken, Chair MAC Art Auction Spokane Committee
