Art Auction to Benefit CHA Mother’s Day Home Tour ~ Through May 14

Heron by the Bay is by Tina Christiansen.

The Coronado Historical Association is honored to partner with local artists for a very special Mother’s Day treat. Local artists have donated fabulous works of art for an online auction to support CHA’s Annual Mother’s Day Historic Home Tour

Online bidding is open now through 5 pm on May 14, 2023. Art included in the auction will be on display during the Historic Home Tour. Pieces vary in size, price point, and medium, including original watercolor, acrylic, and oil paintings, giclee, a cutting board featuring the Del, and a 100% silk scarf featuring a beautiful rendering of the Boathouse. Works are generously donated by water media artist Tina Christiansen, oil painter Lucinda Swain, watercolorists Robert Gerdes and Connie Spitzer, and wood media artist Andrew Hottinger. Connie Spitzer’s creation, featured in the image below, is one of the most unique. This large format print of her watercolor (36×28 inches) showcases a special piece of Coronado’s history and is printed on metal so it can be displayed both indoors and out.
