This year we hosted our inaugural Q-Salon, a showcase of artwork made by Quadrangle staff later auctioned to raise funds for SKETCH Working Arts. With 65 unique pieces submitted, the artistic creativity within our Studio was on full display. The artwork was displayed throughout the common areas of our space and made available for purchase in a silent auction format, with a few of the most coveted submissions withheld for an exciting and competitive live auction that took place on Thursday, April 12.

Not only did we did we get to learn more about the creative talent of our staff - and have a blast at the live auction - we also raised over $2,000 for SKETCH!

Here are a few of the submissions that were sold, many of which saw bidding wars exceed $100 a piece!
