ICON Biennial Art Auction -- ONLINE! The Biennial ICON Art Auction is here -- one of the best art auctions in the state. It is the main fundraising event for the 20 year old non-profit arts organization known for its first class contemporary art gallery which has had over 100 exhibitions of the best of Iowa art. It also has a robust educational program with videos, lectures, forums, workshops, concerts and more. This year the auction is more important than ever. As a 501c3 non-profit, ICON is solely supported by community donations. Due to the COVID19 crisis and the downturn in the economy donations are down. When you purchase art through the ICON Auction, you will not only support this important cultural resource, but you walk away with a work of art by a top artist from the region. There is art that appeals to all art sensibilities -- from realistic rural landscape to abstract expressionism; from impressionism to assemblage art. Artists are generally not able to make cash donations to the gallery, but they help support ICON by donating art. 100% of the proceeds from the auction goes to cover ICON operating expenses. All items in the auction can be viewed by going to the ICON website It is advised that visitors study the offerings online before coming to the gallery. You can bid on your phone! Because COVID19 is spiking in Jefferson Co at this time, the gallery will be open by appointment only for interested bidders who would like to view the work in person. Single individuals, or people who live together can make appointments by calling or emailing Bill Teeple: or 641 919 6252. Masks are required. Half hour slots can be scheduled Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 to 4:30. Bring your phone and bid on the spot!
