Salvador Dali film + OAA Auction

 

Ogunquit Performing Arts and Ogunquit Arts Collaborative continue the 11th season of The Art Videos at the Gallery 7:30 pm Wednesday, August 8 with the showing of a film about Salvador Dali at the Barn Gallery—Bourne Lane at Shore Road. Admission is free. As in previous years, there will be discussion about the film before the showing by members of the Ogunquit Art Association.

Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was born Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dali i Domènech in Spain and is considered one of the 20th Century’s most controversial and celebrated artists, and perhaps the most versatile. He participated in and excelled in several fields: painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, writing, and film. He was practically a one-man artistic movement. His unique and mystifying genius brought him international fame and popularity and he is the only artist in history to have two separate museums dedicated exclusively to his works erected during his lifetime: The Salvador Dali Museum in Florida and Theatre Museo Dali in Spain.

Join the excitement at the famous OAA Art Auction on August 4. Auctioneer Hap Moore will help you bid on paintings, graphics, photographs, and sculpture by members of the Ogunquit Art Association, the area’s oldest professional artists organization. Doors open at 6 PM. Bidding begins at 7 p.m. – new time.

Come to the Barn Gallery to preview the work, pick an artist-designed bid card or leave a Silent Bid from Tuesday, July 31 through Friday, August 3 from 11 AM to 5 PM, and Saturday, August 4 from 11 AM to 2 PM.

Participating OAA artists, many with national and international reputations, have created original, one-of-a-kind bid cards on sale at the Gallery for $25. A bid card purchase includes auction admission, catalog and refreshments. Plain bid cards for admission are available for $5.
