about the event
Collectors Choice is a beloved annual event for local artists, collectors, and art enthusiasts. Each year artists from around the St. Louis region and United States donate artwork to Collectors Choice.
Funds are raised through tickets sales to the Selection Party, a night of suspense, chance, and the luck of the draw as names of CCXIX ticket-holders are randomly selected. When your name is called, you choose one of the available pieces of artwork! With the purchase of one ticket, the ticket holder and a guest may attend and acquire one piece of original artwork (valued at $250 or more). Tickets are limited to the number of artworks available. All proceeds support the St. Louis Artists’ Guild’s mission and programs.
