Every year, Buddies welcomes hundreds of discerning art lovers and adventurous shoppers for an outrageous art auction unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Our live auction features work from dozens of our country’s foremost contemporary artists, while the Rock Hudson Memorial Tuck Shop offers an astounding collection of artist multiples and limited edition prints. We’ve also got a silent auction full of products and cultural experiences from a variety of local business. So there’s something for everyone at ArtAttack!
It all goes down at a punk rock art party with your host Johnnie Walker, auctioneer Charlene Nero, lots of surprise performances, tasty treats from Sassafraz, free beer (and a striptease) from the boys at Steamwhistle, and an afterparty with DJ Phillippe.

“Steven Beckly is magic. To be precise, he is a magician when it comes to capturing light; not only from the technical stand point of making an exposure, but from rendering light as subject. Beckly’s There’s a land that I heard of explores and uses light in the manner in which he so beautifully does throughout his practice and in so doing plays with and cultivates the poetics of both desire and intimacy. The wood paneling, a teenage memory, of a suburban basement caught in the warm glow of early fall afterschool light. There are no ruby slippers to be found over this rainbow, but rather a dusting of glitter and that which exists outside of the photographic fame: a pot of gold that for many of us in the LGBT community, over the past forty years, is Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.”
