Our Auction last Thursday was a fun event. We had works from both members and non members, in many different sizes, media and styles. This is an annual event held in conjunction with ArTober, a month long event in Bangor celebrating the arts. Mark Bradstreet of Searsport, honored us as Auctioneer.
Here are some of the works that were offered:
Thank you to all the artists, their friends, family and all the arts supporters who came by to share the evening with us.
Come on down to the Penobscot Valley Country Club tomorrow, October 24th! Artist bring your work(s) between 3:30 and 5 for intake! Viewing starts at 5 and the auction starts at 6.
Buyers come on down at 5 for previews and refreshments. Your bidding paddle can be had for a donation of just $5 which helps us offset the cost of the amazing spread of food offered. This is a great opportunity to obtain locally created, beautiful artwork at a great price.
There will be both a live auction and a silent auction.

Was a huge success at The Penobscot Valley Country Club
The Bangor Art Society held our annual “Paint the greater Bangor Area” on Thursday, October 11!
22 artists participated at PVCC! We thank Christine Foster, Food and Beverage Manager at PVCC for the wonderful refreshments and auction space that over-looked this historic course.
There was a Live Auction and a Silent Auction in the club house, and we appreciate the expertise of Auctioneer Mark Bradstreet.
Bangor Art Society is a proud member of the Greater Bangor Chamber, when you join BAS you automatically gain membership into the Chamber and reduced registration fee for the paint-out!
