Brief: Concealed Reveal Auction benefits YWCA

Review Staff Report

The Governor’s Row House is hosting the 14th annual Concealed Reveal Act Auction Friday, April 28th.

The event, located at 811 SW Buchanan Street, was created by Washburn students as a way to incorporate the local art community in the effort to stop violence against women. The art on exhibit utilizes “revealing” images of violence which are often “concealed” in American society.

Local artists’ work will be on display, with over 70 items having been donated to this years auction alone. Previously, locally renowned artists, such as the late Glenda Taylor, have donated to the event each year since its conception in 2004.

The auction will also feature art by survivors of violence. The Concealed Reveal Auction hopes to offer methods of healing and strength to victims, as well as provide inspiration to future artists. Tickets are $45 in advance, and $55 at the door.
