The H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery announces our first exhibition for the spring semester, a student scholarship fundraiser auction, to raise money for the H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery Fund. The gallery namesake, H. Paxton Moore, was a beloved longtime faculty member at El Centro and supporter of the fine arts, and when the gallery was named in his memory in 2007, a fund was created to benefit our students.

Each academic year, the gallery gives out $2500 in scholarships and awards to our visual fine arts students each year from the gallery fund. This ongoing generosity has made it important to replenish the fund, so that we may continue this mission in support of our students.
Works from a selection of approximately three dozen professional, faculty, and student artists, including Carlos Donjuan, Raymond Butler, Artist DIY, Randall Garrett, Annie Chrietzberg, and many  more will be available to bid on. During the exhibition, work will be available to purchase on the spot, at a “Buy It Now” price not to exceed $200. At the closing reception a live auction will be held, and works will be auctioned at any price, to the highest bidder. There will be plenty of small paintings, sculpture, framed works on paper, and artist multiples available.

Additionally, interested patrons may make a donation directly to the gallery fund, to benefit our visual fines arts students at:
