Come on by, bid on some great work, get some crazy good deals, and help us raise money for building repairs. We love our farm, but it requires constant love and upkeep.

For May’s First Friday Antfarm is excited to present prints, drawings, and paintings by antfarmer Christina Preher.  Christina’s work depicts a world that is both familar and surreal, charming and creepy.

We are some excited to welcome everyone to the first-ever Buzz Kill silent auction tonight. Better art deals have never been found in Raleigh and the cause couldn’t be much more needy. We’ve got cold ones, a shimmer wall, live music, and pencils on strings. Hurry on over.

On April 2 Antfarm will host its Buzz Kill silent auction during the First Friday Gallery Walk, 6-9 pm. Every summer millions of mosquitos swarm the studios and eat us alive, so we need to raise funds for window screens for the building. Come on by and bid on cool art and jewelry at bargain prices during our silent auction and help your local antfarmers avoid a really itchy summer.

Guitarist Ezekiel Graves will be performing that night and filling the farm with his amazing experimental folk. (Click here to hear Ezekiel’s music.)

BIDDING ENDS @ 8:30 PM, so don’t dilly dally! (Cash preferred, checks accepted. Sorry, we can’t take cards.) Many items start under $10 so you can’t beat the price or the cause!

Check out the buzz! Read the recent article about Antfarm in New Raleigh!

BUZZ KILL Rules of Engagement:
The Buzz Kill silent auction begins at 6:00 pm. Each piece of art will have its own bid sheet. To establish your bid simply print your name, phone number and the amount of your bid on the bid sheet. All bids must be at least $1 higher than the previous bid. Bids that are illegible or less than $1 higher will be voided.
Bidding will end at 8:30. The Anfarmers will make an announcement that the bidding has closed and strike the bidding sheets at that time. The winning bids will be announced as soon as the results are finalized. Bidders are asked to leave the art on the wall until after payment has been processed—even if they are sure they won. (Reminder, we can accept cash or checks. Sadly, no credit cards.)
NOTE: If you are the winning bidder but cannot stay till the end of the auction, have no fear! We will make arrangements with you to pick up and pay for the work at a later time.
Thank you for supporting your local Antfarmers!
