We will be hosting an Art Auction every other year.

We will announce the information as we confirm dates and details. In the meantime, see the information below about our past event.

The Frankenmuth Arts Council will be hosting their 5th Annual Auction and Gallery on September 19 at the Bavarian Inn Lodge. The theme for this year’s event is Fire and Aire, which was chosen to reflect the Council’s special art weekend scheduled for October 18-20.

Many of our well-received artists from the past will be returning with their latest creations. Two years ago, the Council added a gallery section to the event, which has also added to the experience and availability of our guests to purchase artwork.

Once again, Judy Zehnder Keller has come up with a new and exciting menu. For the first time ever at the Lodge, the dessert portion of the meal will consist of a “Dessert Auction.” We think it will be an exciting addition with a fun element of surprise.

Tickets for the event are $35 per person with a cash bar, and are available online or at the Frankenmuth Credit Union. Remember—if you are a FAC member, your ticket is only $30. Hors D’ oeuvres begin at 5:15 with the meal beginning at 6:15.

The Council will once again be awarding their Creative Minds award to a deserving member of the community. In the past, the Council has mentored a child in producing a piece of art which is put up for auction. This year’s participant is Emily Zells who is receiving her learning experience from Sharon Bergman.

Proceeds of the Auction will be used for the annual FHS scholarship given to a deserving senior entering college who is studying the arts. Another fundraising goal of the Council is to one day have a Gallery in Frankenmuth of original art.

Please join us for this fun evening by supporting our local artists and the Council. You may be able to begin your Christmas shopping in the middle of September this year.
