Auction supports Hambidge Center artist retreat in Northeast Georgia


The 20th Hambidge Auction and Performance Gala, 7 p.m. May 30 at the Goat Farm Arts Center, will feature a silent auction of artworks by more than 175 established and emerging artists selected by Ben Goldman of Kibbee Gallery and Zuckerman Museum curator Teresa Bramlette Reeves.

Auction attendees also will be able to vote on one of the five finalists in Field Experiment, an initiative that will bring a major public art project to Atlanta in the fall.

Co-presented by the Goat Farm, the event benefits the nonprofit Hambidge Center, a Northeast Georgia residency program with the mission of “empowering talented individuals to explore, develop, and express their creative voices.”

General admission: $50 advance, $55 door. VIP: $225, includes access to a private preview party featuring craft cocktails, food and an auction preview tour with Michael Rooks, High Museum curator of modern and contemporary art.
