The annual Wine & Art Auction is Tandem Press’s largest fundraiser. Held on the third Thursday in June, this event is looked forward to as a celebration of art, fine wine, good food, and our amazing community of supporters, both locally and nationally. Since 1993, the annual Wine & Art Auction has featured distinctive, interesting, and rare wines, art, specialty dinners, and exotic trips. The items are auctioned off through both a live and silent auction, accompanied by live music and entertainment, specialty beverages, a wonderful dinner catered by a local restaurant, and beautiful floral arrangements. This event is organized by a committee of generous supporters of Tandem Press and takes place at a different location each year.
The funds raised through this event allow us to offer an important award to an outstanding UW-Madison graduate student, relieving them of their tuition expenses and paying them a salary and benefits while also making it possible for them to gain a highly valuable learning experience by working in a professional printmaking studio. It also allows us to engage in outreach programming, including artist lectures, tours, printmaking demonstrations, and exhibitions. Because of our Wine Auction donors and attendees, we can offer our students a unique educational experience through internships and assistantships throughout our organization that is unequaled elsewhere.
