The Donkey Mill Art Center’s 15th annual art auction, CONVERGENCE, celebrates the power of the arts to bring people, ideas and perspectives together in unity to inspire individual and collective well-being. As a place of convergence for the exploration of arts and culture, the Donkey Mill is honored to feature the works of over 75 works by emerging and established artists from Hawaiʻi and beyond. As West Hawaiʻi's premier event for art enthusiasts and collectors, auction artworks include an exceptional selection of ceramics, paintings, kapa, photographs, prints, lauhala, jewelry and more.
With the online silent auction taking place from February 12 to 26 and an in-person live auction at the Mill on Saturday, February 26, 2022, this year’s virtual and in-person events enable patrons from around the world to bid competitively on exemplary work by respected artists.
