The Burn Auction 

When: Sat., Oct. 24, 5 p.m. 2015
UPDATE: Due to the current burn ban in Boise, the Burn Auction has been moved to Saturday, Oct. 24. Still next door to 10 Barrel, still at 5 p.m.

Live auctions can be intense experiences as bids rise, adrenaline pumps and auctioneers reel off their rattle. The Burn Auction on Saturday, Oct. 24 turns up the heat (literally) even more by adding fire. Auction goers can bid on 24 original works from local artists like Tony Caprai, Lisa Roggenbuck, Danielle Demaray and Martin Wilke. If bids don't reach the secret reserve price, the artwork is shoved into an incinerator.

The auction takes place at the parking lot neighboring 10 Barrel Brewing, which will provide beer and finger foods.

"It's a reminder that if we don't support local art in our community, it will be gone," said organizer Ellen DeAngelis, who is also Boise Weekly's classified ads manager.

Artwork viewing starts at 5 p.m., and the auction starts at 7 p.m.
