Non-Profit Art Auctions

We have discussed before where and how to find artists whose work will increase in value, but today I want to highlight another great way to purchase valuable art at a bargain. Non-profit art auctions are a great way to donate to a good cause while adding to your art collection. Non-profit groups seek out artists whose artwork will have the greatest potential to sell, in order to bring in money for their foundation. So keep an eye out for non-profit art auctions or if you belong to a group that is trying to raise money think about possibly hosting one for your cause.

Here is a painting that I have donated to the Grooming Future World Leaders organization.

Tuscany Summer, 8x24 gallery wrap canvas
