Mystery Art Fest Exhibit @ Kemp Center for the Arts

What is Mystery Art Fest?

  • Mystery Art is an annual exhibit and auction of works by local and regional artists of all levels.
  • Artwork is donated by the artist and their name is hidden and becomes a mystery.
  • On the first day of the exhibit artwork is judged and awards are given.
  • Artwork is then displayed in the NorthLight Gallery for 3 weeks
  • At the end of the exhibit, artwork is auctioned at Mystery Art Fest Auction Night

When does all this happen?

September 26 – November 28

Created by the National Archives with the support of the Foundation for the National Archives and organized for travel by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, this exhibition showcases facsimile prints of early 20th century drawings, using satire, gesture, and simplicity to communicate the American democratic experience.

MEMENTO: a Juried Exhibition of Art that Reminds Us
Oct 23 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
This exhibition is accessible to small groups tours of 8 or less, by appointment only. Email to make an appointment M-F, 11:00-5:00.  MASKS ARE REQUIRED.
Humble, ordinary items can become sacred artifacts when they are imbued with personal sentiment. The juried art show, “Memento: Art that Reminds Us” seeks to explore the objects that encapsulate a specific moment in our personal stories, and our attachment to those memories. 9th Street Studios assembled a panel of jurors from a variety of disciplines, who were not exclusively tied to the Wichita Falls Art Scene. The Call to Artists attracted submissions from all over the state of Texas, and as far away as Germany. The result is a bright and diverse selection of art that evokes emotion that only mementos can.
Mystery Art Fest and Live Auction Night @ Kemp Center for the Arts
Oct 23 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm

How does it work?

Step 1:   Artists from all over the region and beyond donate art that is 8″ x 10″
Step 2:   Artwork is exhibited in the NorthLight Gallery and awards are made.
Step 3:   Throughout the exhibit we have many fun evening events (full calendar coming soon).
Step 4:   During the exhibit patrons bid on artwork by silent auction.
Step 5:   On Auction Night, the gallery is open for a competitive hour of silent auction bidding.
Step 6:   If a piece meets the highest silent auction bid possible, it goes to the live auction.
Step 7:   During the live auction patrons make a bid and solve the mystery: who created their newly-purchased art?
