If you’re after plans to kickstart your weekend, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis’ Art:314 gala is Friday night—but prints went on auction yesterday morning.

Lots of local favorites are up for bidding: young artist Nick Schleicher; ceramicist Norleen Nosri; book-magician Buzz Spector; trompe-l’œil-ist Carrie Becker, textile artist Grace Kubilius; painter Alicia Lachance; photographer Heather Bennett; and more (find the complete list at the bottom of this post).

Or, if you wait until Friday to bid, you’ll be able to catch the silent auction at the beginning of the evening—then it’s open bar and dancing for all until midnight.
