In January 2020, Arts on Main purchased their home on Main Street thanks to the support of the community and financing from Chesapeake Bank. In March, the Main Street Preservation Trust awarded AoM a grant to open the new Main Street Gallery and connect it to the space occupied previously. Strong support from the Cook Foundation and generous donors enabled AoM to raise the funds to meet the match. Watch our transformation to expand gallery and classroom space… we encourage you to be a part of it!

We are very excited to be able to carry on our Gala through the online auction site called Auctria and you can purchase your ticket right now. Here’s how…
First, purchase your “paddle” or “party and paddle” from Arts on Main, either in person at the gallery or here on our website. Be sure to complete all the registration form fields that are requested. We will then add you and your information to our bidder list. Please allow us 2-3 business days to process your registration. Once you have registered and paid, you will receive an email message from Arts on Main with the subject line, “2020 Annual Gala Auction registration.” From there you will receive detailed instructions for registering with Auctria and if you choose to purchase a party basket you can pick it up anytime from October 2nd at 5pm through October 15th at 5pm.
The Auctria Auction site will open for bidding on October 2nd at 5pm. We have structured this experience to imitate both the silent and live auctions we have had in the past. The items in the “silent” auction are available for bids on October 2nd through the 17th at 7 p.m. The items reserved for the “live” auction will also be available immediately at the “Buy Now” price listed. However, bids other than “buy now” cannot be placed on until the evening of October 17th from 7-9pm.
You can access the Auctria Auction on your computer, phone or tablet. You must be able to connect to the internet via Ethernet Cable, WiFi, Personal Hotspot or Cellular Data.
