MURRAY, Ky. –  The Murray State Department of Art & Design and University Galleries are pleased to host the 2022 Annual Holiday Art Auction on Friday, Nov. 11, beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the Clara M. Eagle Gallery located on the sixth floor of the Price Doyle Fine Arts building on Murray State’s campus.

Original works of art in a wide variety of formats will be available for purchase through both silent and live auction during the evening.

Cintia Segovia Warmth

“Warmth” (12x12 oil pastel on photograph) by featured artist Cintia Segovia. The flower is called a platanillo. These plants thrive in Mexico and are used to decorate during Day of the Dead.

 

This year’s featured artist is Cintia Segovia, assistant professor of Photography and New Media at Murray State University. Segovia holds degrees from California State University - Long Beach, California; California State University - Northridge, California; the University of California Los Angeles, California; and the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education of Monterrey, México. In her work, she explores the intersection of cultures, not only through places of origin, but also socio-economic strata, and how different groups of people can see one subject in different ways. Her art has been featured in numerous exhibitions across the United States and online.

The Art Auction festivities will begin at 4:30 p.m. with a preview and refreshments from the Big Apple Cafe for those ages 21 and over. Registration and the silent auction begin at 6 p.m. and are open to all ages. The live auction will begin at 7 p.m.
