Regard the Light: The Spirit of California in Art and Wine 
Jonathan Art Foundation's
March 2023 Online Auction Fundraiser




BIDDING OPENS:  Sunday, March 19, 12:00 noon PST  

BIDDING CLOSES:  (Auction extended) Sunday, April 2, 9:00 p.m. PST 

The Jonathan Art Foundation is delighted to announce the return of our online auction, which will run from March 19th to March 26th. This year's auction provides an even more eclectic range of goods and experiences to bid on as well as donating directly to the Jonathan Art Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit, via our Raise the Paddle option on our auction site.

There are the anticipated contemporary artworks by 30 artists, among them plein air paintings, landscape photography and mixed media, as well as opportunities to bid on reciprocal club certificates, sporting events, fine dining experiences and luxury goods, including cigar collections, jewelry and wine. Individuals could even opt to have their portrait captured in pigment or print by one of two renowned artists. Plus, we’re happy to confirm that, in addition to the satisfaction you’ll get from successfully bidding on a work of art, 50% of the amount raised from each sale will go directly to the artist, most of whom are based in LA.


This annual fundraiser makes our acquisitions possible, and funds go to the ongoing expense of curating, preserving, and managing the Jonathan Club's and Jonathan Art Foundation's art collections. Thank you to everyone who is participating!
