The Clay Ball auction and dinner is one of Salem’s premier social events. This annual fundraiser attracts 500 guests each year to raise money for the Salem Art Association’s community-enriching, non-profit programs.
Clay Ball includes both silent and live auctions featuring original works of art from some of our community’s most talented, and generous, artists. Exclusive experience packages are also available; everything from tastings at local distilleries to exotic vacations are there for the taking. Tickets also include wandering appetizers, a catered dinner and dessert, and complimentary wine from a local vineyard. After the dinner and live auction, the dance floor opens up so guests can dance through the night.
Ticket purchases, along with any purchases made in the auctions, benefits the Salem Art Association’s three core programs: the Bush Barn Art Center, the Bush House Museum, and Community Arts Education. The Salem Art Association is a 501c3 non-profit organization which has been serving the mid-Willamette Valley since 1919.
We would like to thank all of the local artists, businesses and individuals whose generosity and support has ensured the ongoing success of this event. Those interested in sponsoring Clay Ball should contact Stephanie Patterson, Events Director, at 503-581-2228 x 314 or stephanie@SalemArt.org.
