29th Annual WET PAINT

Art | Artists | Auction

August 13, 2022

We sincerely thank the artists who donated over 250 artworks to our Wet Paint event this year! Your time, talent and generosity are sincerely appreciated by all of us at Newport Art Museum.

Of course, successful auctions would hardly be successful if it were not for generous bidders! Therefore we also thank those  who placed Silent Auction bids and raised paddles during our Live Auction, which was beautifully orchestrated by auctioneer Robin Starr of Bonham’s Skinner.

Corporate and individual sponsorship is also a key component of our Wet Paint success. We thank our 2022 event sponsors: A1 Roofing and Construction, David & Carol Bazarsky, Hogan & Associates Real Estate, The Brenton Hotel, Petrovas Family Philanthropy Fund, Swift Morris Interiors LLC, JPS Construction, Empire Tea & Coffee, BankNewport, Residential Properties, Dwyer Insurance, and Providence Picture Frame.

Proceeds from our Wet Paint event support our Museum’s diverse community outreach activities, collection acquisition fund and our world-class exhibition program, which has featured some of the most celebrated American artists of our time, such as Andy Warhol and Georgia O’Keeffe, as well as hundreds of emerging and established artists from our community and region.

Living with ART makes life better!
