2020 “Paint Historic Belleville” Art Auction

« See All Events

UPDATED with social distancing and virtual bidding information

Because crowd sizes are strictly limited by state mandates, we have decided to move our art auction to online. The Saturday event will be mainly a viewing. We will accept maximum bids on paper and then continue accepting bids on eBay for seven days.

Please check the Facebook event for additional updates.

The online auction will be open for 7 days, closing at noon on Sept. 26th.

We know 2020 has caused change in just about every aspect of our lives. As it turns out, it affects art fundraisers too. We are so appreciative of your flexibility and understanding that things just look different this year. We are grateful for your participation and hope you’ll still support us as we seek to preserve and save some of Belleville’s most significant properties.

Our annual art auction is a fundraising event in which regional artists create original paintings of historic sites in Belleville. The paintings are very generously donated to the BHS for this event.

This is your opportunity to purchase an original work by an established artist depicting a setting significant to Belleville, while also providing the Belleville Historical Society much-needed support.


Saturday, Sept. 19 11:30am – 1:30pm
Paintings on display at Garfield Street Historic Saloon. Guests may view paintings and submit maximum bids. Masks and social distancing required.
Event will also be live streamed on our Facebook page.

Sept. 19 – 26
Bids accepted online.

Sept. 26 at 12 p.m.
Bidding closes.
