Virtual Art Auction 2020

VIRTUAL Art Auction 2020

May 31–June 28, 2020

We’ve made it through some hard times in isolation and now is a great time to put the spotlight on regional artists. This is an exceptional opportunity to collect pieces from prominent Southern California artists while elevating two great causes—the artists who enrich our lives and OMA, the renowned cultural hub that draws those talented people together.
 
Join me and distinguished master of ceremonies Clint Bell as we host three world-class, live-streamed events from Oceanside Museum of Art (OMA) throughout the month of June.
 
We have gathered together a wide-ranging collection of 132 artworks by 81 artists representing the impressive and eclectic artist community from along the cultural corridor between Los Angeles and Tijuana. This month-long series will showcase the art of the Biennial Exhibition with live stream interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage from some of the artists featured.
 
Come participate and enjoy a month-long series of events and support our OMA community.
 
Maria Mingalone
Executive Director


This fun and festive online event is a great opportunity to add exceptional art for both aspiring and established collectors. 

The Artwork

OMA’s Art Auction promises artwork that is lively—sometimes edgy, sometimes traditional, frequently unexpected—but never ordinary. This is an exceptional opportunity to collect pieces from prominent Southern California artists in price ranges that are approachable for collectors at any level.
