Donors have the opportunity to commission a unique work of art from a local artist. There are a number of pet portraits available, as well as other types of artwork to bid on! 

There are a limited number of artworks available!

At the end of the auction period, the highest bidders win the commission! 100% of proceeds go to support Middlebury Studio School Programs. 

Here’s how it works:


  1. Auction kicks off with in-person bidding at the Pottery Sale at the Clay Studio on May 25: If you can, join us at our Pottery Sale at the Clay Studio on Saturday, May 25th from 9am-1pm, where we will be kicking off the auction with in-person bidding!
