The Museum of Biblical Art recently hosted its fourth annual 8 x 8 Art Exhibition and Auction. The “country chic” event featured small works of art up for bid in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, glass, photography and works on paper. The auction raises funds for the museum’s educational programs such as summer art camp, “heroes of history” field trips and children’s workshops.
“The event was a complete sellout of over 110 works of art, with 36 artists from across the country present to meet the guests and bidders,” said Scott Peck, museum curator and director.
Artists this year included: Jane Seymour’s “Open Heart Angel” (special to the museum from the multiple Emmy and Golden Globe winner); J. D. Miller, Dallas contemporary painter; Alvar Suñol, Spanish painter and sculptor; Ruth Buzzi, American comedienne and actress and her husband, actor Kent Perkins; Victor Bregeda, Russian surrealistic painter; Marton Varo, Italian Sculptor; George Tobolowsky, sculptor in metal; Morton Rachofsky, sculptor; and Jeffrey Brosk, New York artist working with exotic wood. Numerous other Dallas/Fort Worth and Texas artists’ work were featured including Henrietta and Rome Milan, KAT, Jeffrey Miranda, Robert Fobear, Henrietta Milan, Maria Sheets and Fred Villanueva. Special works by Gib Singleton and G. H. Rothe were also available during the silent auction.
