East Carolina University

Keaton and Umberger Gala Art Auction and Sale

PLEASE BE ADVISED that the Keaton and Umberger Gala Art Auction and Sale, scheduled to be hosted by the Gray Gallery this upcoming Saturday, September 22nd, has been postponed until 2019. 

While East Carolina University School of Art & Design and the Gray Gallery have been spared by Hurricane Florence, we are aware that a significant amount of our surrounding communities were not. In solidarity with hurricane victims, the Gray Gallery hopes that those who are in a position to give would currently focus their efforts on our neighbors in need. 
If you have already purchased tickets to the event, please note that the auction will be rescheduled (TBD) and purchased tickets will remain valid for the second iteration. If you would prefer a refund, please call 252-328-1268. 

Our greatest wish is a speedy recovery for all. Looking forward to reintroducing this fabulous collection to the public in the new year, until then you can see the full collection on view until Friday, September 21st. Thanks to all for patience and understanding during a difficult time. 

All proceeds from the sale of the Keaton and Umberger Collection will support scholarships and programs at the School of Art and Design.
