SPLASH Youth Arts Workshop, a nonprofit that provides year-round art workshops to Chattanooga youth at no charge, has partnered with Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C., to host the Holiday 2020 Virtual Art Auction.
The auction will be streamed live on Chambliss' Facebook page on Tuesday from 6-6:30 p.m. and will feature artwork created by local youth artists and pieces from internationally acclaimed artist and co-founder of Splash, Charlie Newton.
“We are committed to hosting this art auction for the students prior to the holidays and hoped to have the event in person,” said Mark Cunningham, president and managing shareholder of Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C. “While the pandemic continues to present challenges, the story does not end there. Like so many other events, we are taking the show to a virtual platform and hope the Greater Chattanooga community will join us in supporting these young artists served by SPLASH.”
While the live auction will take place on Tuesday, bidding is now open for the silent auction. Visit www.biddingforgood.com/Splash. Fifty percent of the proceeds from the sales will be given to the student artist who created the work, and the other half will be presented to SPLASH.

In the summer of 2020, Chambliss collaborated with Mr. Newton to bring a curated SPLASH art collection to the firm's conference center located in Liberty Tower, 605 Chestnut St. The gallery is open to the public during normal business hours.
