Over the years, a number of great artists have answered the call to aid KCOS-TV’s cause of providing quality programming. Artists like Bill Rakocy, Manuel Acosta and Alberto Escamilla have donated their best pieces to be auctioned in the annual KCOS-TV Art Auction. This year is no different.
With the KCOS-TV warehouse filled tightly with gorgeous pieces of art, KCOS-TV is preparing for an amazing auction of local art. The art mediums range from oils on canvas to mesotints to tiles. Viewers and art collectors can watch the live auction broadcast and compete for the winning bid. Respected artists such as Don Beene and Pat Olchefski-Winston will join the station’s colorful hosts to share their art history wisdom so viewers can make educated purchases.
The event comes at no better time as federal and corporate funding continues to be reduced. All funds raised will go toward the quality programming El Paso and Southern New Mexico has come to enjoy from KCOS-TV, PBS for El Paso.
Auction-goers can call 915.590.1313 for speed bid numbers to bid quickly and easily the day-of. Individuals can visit kcostv.org to preview select art.
