Exhibit and Auction celebrating artists of all types

What is Mystery Art?

Mystery Art is an annual exhibit and auction of works by local and regional artists of all levels.

  1. Artwork is donated by the artist and their name is hidden and becomes a mystery.
  2. On the first day of the exhibit, artwork is judged and awards are given.
  3. Artwork is displayed in the NorthLight Gallery for 3 weeks.
  4. Artwork is auctioned throughout the event with a Final Auction Night celebration at the end
This year’s Mystery Art exhibit will run October 7 through October 26, 2023.
