Tallie Lancey, a broker with Big Sky Sotheby’s International Realty, and former president of the Arts Council of Big Sky, has been aiding in the planning of the event since its inception four years ago. “There is such a complementary relationship between real estate and art work,” especially through the well-respected Sotheby’s brand, whose mission is fulfilled by “artfully uniting extraordinary lives with extraordinary properties.” In addition to the natural relationship, Lancey says the Arts Council adds so much value to the Big Sky community through the artistic events it provides for local residents and visitors. Lancey describes the Auction for the Arts as a “dynamic, multisensory artistic experience,” giving guests and local artists opportunities to interact, especially during the ‘quick-finish’ session during the live auction. A ‘quick-finish’ means the artist will literally be painting the final brush strokes or drawing the last lines minutes before the auction begins. This year’s live auction will also include a sculptor as well as floral artist, completing their work right before your eyes. 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 Big Sky high school students to Seattle to expose them to careers in the arts.
