We can accept 100 pieces total for the auction and 30 – 35 of those for the live auction. Artwork will be juried for inclusion and placement in the live or silent auction. We may not be able to accept all donations. If your piece is not chosen for the live auction, you have the option of replacing it with another piece for the silent auction or withdrawing your donation. We will select and announce the live auction entries by April 1.

All artwork accepted for the auction becomes the property of Sisters Folk Festival, Inc.

To Thank Our Donating Artists…..

  • Donated artwork is professionally photographed and posted on our website. We will be happy to provide you with a digital file of your donation.
  • Each donating artist receives a complimentary ticket to the Saturday auction. Due to space limitations, we can offer you the option to purchase only one additional ticket, but we will discount that ticket to $50 for your guest (regular price is $90). We will notify artists when tickets are available to purchase.
  • Contributing artists who commit by February 5 will receive a pair of tickets to the second Winter Concert, We Banjo 3, on February 12 at Sisters High School. We will automatically issue the tickets and email them to artists who commit to making a donation.
