Hi friends! This is our second auction of the pandemic year! We are running the Artblog auction and birthday celebration online for security reasons and also to make the auction and party as accessible as possible. This year the auction site is at Better World, and you do not need to register to participate. Our auction is public and available now, but come back on October 23 at 8:00 a.m. when the auction will be LIVE with even more artwork! Discover breathtaking art from excellent contemporary Philadelphia artists like Roberto Lugo, Annette Monnier, Mikel Elam, Rebecca Rutstein and Bryan Warner! You can find the list as of today (and it continues to grow!) Below, along with information on our anniversary celebration.

You don’t need a sales pitch from us! You know the art of Philadelphia is great and you want to support the artists. Artblog also wants to support artists and we are offering 25% of the sale price to the artist as a sign of respect for their importance to you, to us and to Philadelphia. We hope to see you soon, at Artblog auction in 2021!
