Boasting 400 works contributed by 250 artists from all over the world, the galleries of the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts will be the most interesting place in Omaha on two evenings in October. The Underground Auction on October 13th is a prelude to the big event on October 15th when the gavel drops on the organization’s 13th Annual Art Auction.

More than just the area’s premier contemporary art event of the year, the elbow-to-elbow crowd at this one elevates peoplewatching to an art form in and of itself. Because the auction features work in all price ranges, beginning collectors will mingle with savvy veterans during a frenzy of bidding in a silent auction before higher-priced pieces go on the block in a live auction.

The 13th Annual Art Auction exhibition is hung and the galleries are now open, meaning that it’s time to wander the 12,000 square feet of gallery space, scope out your favorite pieces and devise a bidding strategy.

Over 600 artists from all across the globe have participated in residency programs at the internationally acclaimed non-profit that is celebrating its 30th year of artists supporting artists.
