Once again the Auction for the Arts at Lone Mountain Ranch was a huge success! Artists raised over $110,000 for the arts in Big Sky, Montana. Sponsored by Big Sky Sotheby's International Realty, this event is an amazing display of artist's talents. The Auction for the Arts was a “dynamic, multisensory artistic experience,” giving guests and local artists opportunities to interact, especially during the ‘quick-finish’ session during the live auction. The artists literally painted the final brush strokes or drew the last lines minutes before the auction began. The live auction included a sculptor as well as floral artist. Big Sky Local Artists included: Jackie Rainford Corcoran, Ari O., Jill Zeidler, Ryan Turner, Greg Darden, Shelly Bermont, Kira Fercho, Julio Freitas, Lori Elliot, Lorri Lagerbloom, and Heather Rapp. The Arts Council of Big Sky wishes for the community to “remain a beautiful place where the expression, enjoyment, and education of the Arts will inspire and sustain a healthy and vibrant community.” Programming provided by the Arts Council include the well-loved summer outdoor concert series, a local film festival, public art projects, and a new program to bring Lone Peak (Big Sky) high school students to Seattle to expose them to careers in the arts.
