Art in Nature Auction

DRBA's Art in Nature Auction is an annual fundraising event that raises money to help protect the natural and cultural resources of the Dan River Basin and spotlights local artists, hobbyists and craftspeople. DRBA's Art in Nature Auction pieces include one-of-a-kind pieces that are made from, and inspired by, nature and the auction also includes donations of outdoor experiences that will make memories of a lifetime. Items can include sculptures, paintings, stained glass, photography, pottery, jewelry, furniture, and more.

This year, 100% of proceeds will help DRBA to protect our local rivers & streams and provide environmental education and outdoor experiences for thousands of kids. Sales from some of the auction items and refreshments will benefit Gateway Streetscape Foundation, Inc.

 Calling All Artists & Craftspeople!

 DRBA acquires pieces for its Art in Nature Auction year-round. We are looking for artwork, jewelry, photographs, furniture, crafts – just about anything that is made from natural media, items that support nature (birdhouses, etc.), and nature-themed items. Children's items may be accepted. 

Items are preferred that have been created by artists from North Carolina and Virginia. Sculptures, ornaments, scarfs, furniture, photographs, paintings, jewelry, quilts, and more are accepted. Or you can donate a nature-related experience!

100% of the proceeds from the Art in Nature Auction help support the protection of our natural and cultural resources throughout the 3,300 square miles of the Dan River Basin.
