Work of Art

Public Program, Member Events, Fundraising Events

Work of Art at the Albany Institute of History & Art is an annual cocktail party and silent art auction that celebrates and promotes one of our region’s greatest assets: its vibrant community of regional artists. 

This year, Work of Art will be on Wednesday, November 6th from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the galleries of the Albany Institute. We are thrilled to announce that we are honoring Willie Marlowe, a beloved area artist who has exhibited work from our own Capital Region to national and international shows in Chicago, NYC, London, Venice, Berlin, and more. She will be honored for her contribution to the region’s cultural and artistic landscape as an artist and a professor for almost 50 years. 

At Work of Art, guests will enjoy fine fare while exploring the galleries. A silent auction will feature works by contemporary artists, continuing the Institute’s support of our area’s vibrant community of regional artists. Proceeds from the auction are shared between the Albany Institute and the artists, encouraging art creators and art patrons to connect during a night to remember.
