Society 1858 Art Walk

May 16, 2023 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Gibbes Museum of Art


Since 2020, Society 1858 has invited artists, collectors, and galleries to donate fine art for auction, along with the programs and initiatives of the Gibbes, to help sustain the $10,000 annual 1858 Prize given to an artist creating in the South. 

The auction in its inaugural year brought in nearly $60,000 of critical funds during the pandemic and has continued to play a pivotal role in the success of the 1858 Prize and the Gibbes Museum of Art. This year, we are thrilled to include an Art Walk. On May 16, 2023, from 5 - 7pm, during the online auction to showcase prominent works, we are inviting Gibbes members, and friends of the Gibbes, to join our Art Walk where we will stroll from gallery to gallery, view some of the auctioned pieces that will be on display by our supportive partners, and mingle with our beloved art community. 

Thank you to Anglin Smith Fine Art, Corrigan Gallery, Ella Richardson Fine Art, Helena Fox Fine Art, Meyer Vogl Gallery, Mickey Williams Gallery, Robert Lange Studios, and The George Gallery for partnering with Society 1858 and the Gibbes. Without your incredible support — we would not be able to offer such magical experience and a night to remember!
