19th Annual Cup Auction

December 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC-6

Join the Carbondale Clay Center at 201A Main St. on First Friday, Dec. 1, for its 19th annual Cup Auction. The event serves as one of the Clay Center’s biggest fundraisers and features hundreds of original, handmade ceramic cups for bid via silent auction. Bidding ends promptly at 8:30 p.m., and cups can be paid for and taken home that same night.

Each year, the Cup Auction gains more popularity, drawing collectors from all over the Roaring Fork Valley to this one-night-only auction opportunity. The cups range from quirky mugs to elegant tumblers, from wild shot cups to refined tea bowls, and everything in-between. With artists from around the country represented, there is something for everyone.

The Clay Center is experiencing a big growth spurt, with studio space maxed at capacity, support for the organization now is crucial for continued growth next year.

The Cup Auction is from 6 to 9 p.m. on First Friday, Dec. 1, at 201A Main St., (across from Fat Belly Burger) Carbondale, Colorado. Bidding closes promptly at 8:30 p.m. Music and refreshments will be available, and the Clay Center’s holiday show will be on view in its gallery at 135 Main St.
