  • The Year of the Ox continues!

’OX’TION GALA comes to Grounds for Sculpture, January 24, 2015

Still want to own an ox?  After a straggler joined the herd, eleven special oxen have been selected for the Year of the Ox live auction and gala to be held at Grounds for Sculpture on January 24, 2015.   Not sure what you would do with one? Here are some suggestions

Absentee bidding is available. If you are unable to attend the Gala and would like to place a bid on one of these wonderful oxen, please contact Carol Lipson at carolalipson@gmail.com or 609-818-1512 (between 8 am and 9 pm) to make the necessary arrangements. 

You can also bid in absentia on all items in the Silent Auction by registering for online bidding. Online bidding is now open and will close at 8pm on January 24.

We’d like to thank all the online auction bidders for the 33 oxen that were sold in October. The final auction tally was $73,581! This money, along with the funds raised at the ‘Ox’tion Gala in January, will be used to fund future Arts Council programs and exhibitions and bring you more art in the everyday!
