Hockaday 5th Annual Benefit Auction 
Miniatures & More

May 5 through silent auction on May 19, 2006

The Miniatures are paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and glass works that are 9 x 12 inches or smaller by more than 60 of the finest artists from around the Northwest. This 5th annual invitational fine art exhibition and auction also included a selection of larger works, as well as the very popular “Wall of Real Miniatures”, with postcard-sized works and small pottery pieces sold as a 100% donation by the artist to the Museum.

The auction, held Friday, May 19 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm, was followed by dinner in the Historic KM Building’s Mezzanine Ballroom with culinary creations by Red’s Wines and Blues. A free Preview Party was held Friday, May 5 where the Museum asked patrons to vote for the Purchase Award, which is purchased by the Museum for its permanent collection. The winner was "Wilderness Pond" by Jeff Walker. Past Purchase Award winning artists include R.E. Pierce, Frank Hagel, Joe Abbrescia and Mark Ogle.
