Welcome to the 38th annual Art from the Heart benefit auction!

Art from the Heart is a long-standing part of the University Art Gallery’s history and we are determined to continue this annual tradition in whatever form allows us to keep our audience safe.    Artworks featured in this year's Art from the Heart auction will be available for viewing in the gallery; however,  bidding on this year’s auction items will take place entirely online.

This year’s Art from the Heart exhibition takes place in the University Art Gallery February 2 - February 5; we'll be open 11:00-7:00pm each day. Here, you will have the chance to view the auction items up close and personal. At the same time, you’ll have the opportunity to bid online on any artworks you just can’t live without.    New this year: Install the LiveSource app to your phone and do your bidding directly from home, while visiting the gallery, or from anywhere!

We hope you will support the Gallery this year by bidding on and purchasing works of art donated by a diverse group of over 100 artists from Sonoma County and beyond. Artists participating in this year’s auction include Adela Akers, Bryan Barasch, Monica Bryant, Nuala Creed, Christel Dillbohner, Kevin Fletcher, Stephen Galloway, Cynthia Hipkiss, Robert Hudson, Kurt Kemp, Kara Maria, Mark Perlman, Nancy Selvin, Sylvia Seventy, Jennifer Sturgill, Cate White, and Stephen Whisler, and many others.  Whatever your taste, there is likely something for you to take home. 

Proceeds from Art from the Heart make possible the many great exhibitions, catalogs, and guest lectures on contemporary art that have served the campus and surrounding communities for over 40 years.  We thank you for your continued support, needed now more than ever.
