Join us for the 2018 Night of Artists signature event!  This memorable evening begins with the Night of Artists “Luck of the Draw*” sale.  Over 260 works of painting, sculpture, and mixed media art are available for sale representing 75 of the country’s top Western artists. The fun continues with delicious food stations, drinks, and live music under the stars on the banks of the iconic San Antonio River Walk.

*What is a “Luck of the Draw” Sale?  If you are new to Night of Artists, don’t let the “Luck of the Draw” sale intimidate you!  Featured  artwork at the exhibition is available for purchase through a fixed price established by the artist.  The price will be posted with the art piece and also published online and in the Night of Artists catalog.   As an attendee you will be provided with a ballot book which will enable you to place a ballot slip in the box by a work of art that you wish to purchase. Through a process designed and monitored for fairness, up to three (3) potential buyers’ names are drawn, giving them the opportunity to purchase during the formal sale.
