Dallas Contemporary, the artspace that presents contemporary art in a forum that cultivates artists, announced its distinguished host committee and featured artists for the upcoming Wish! Art Auction to be held on Saturday, May 15th and a Premiere Peek on Thursday, May 13 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the art space.

Wish! Art Auction is held annually and features  works by emerging and established artists from Texas and beyond. The Art Auction is a chance for art enthusiasts to have a front row seat at a parade of artistic talent. The evening invites new collectors and savvy art connoisseurs to view and bid on pieces from a diverse selection of museum-quality art. Peek's sneak preview allows guests a first look at the exhibition during the must-attend event.

"We are thrilled to host Wish! at our new home in the Design District," said Joan Davidow, Dallas Contemporary director. "Wish! is a top fundraiser for Dallas Contemporary, and as we come closer to meeting our Capital Campaign goal of $6 million, it's an exciting time to be a part of Dallas' contemporary art scene."

Tickets to Peek are $40 for members/$50 for non-members; Wish! Art Auction are $100 for members/$125 for non-members; Peek and Wish! Art Auction are $125 for members/$150 non-members; and an auction table for eight to Wish! Art Auction is $800.
