Concealed Revealed Art Auction

Topeka, KS – The 13th annual Concealed Revealed Art Auction will be held Friday, April 29TH at The Governor’s Row House at 811 SW Buchanan Street. Tickets are $30 in advance at $40 at the door. Advance tickets are available at or at the YWCA located at 225 SW 12th Street.
Concealed Revealed was conceived by a group of Washburn University art students in 2004 as a way to involve the art community in the effort to stop violence against women. The name of the event, Concealed Revealed, was chosen by the student’s because their art was “revealing” violence that is often “concealed” in our society. The event has raised over $100,000 dollars in the last 13 years and has helped fund several projects including a remodel of Topeka's only domestic violence shelter.  The funds have also been used for client assistance and support groups for survivors of violence and their children.
The auction will feature donated works by established and emerging local artists, including jewelry-makers, sculptors, painters and photographers. Over sixty pieces of artwork have been donated to this year’s auction, making Concealed Revealed one of Topeka’s premier art events. Many of Topeka’s most beloved and well-known artists have been donating to this event since it began 13 years ago. The auction will also feature art pieces created by survivors of violence. “It can be difficult for trauma survivors to tell their story. Creating art allows for a different way to tell their story and to heal.” said Joan Wagnon, Interim CEO of the YWCA.
"Supporting Concealed Revealed is a direct way to support the incredible work that is done at the Center for Safety and Empowerment, plain and simple. The bonus is... you also get the chance to score some incredible art by amazing local artists!" says new program director for YWCA’s Center for Safety and Empowerment, Michelle McCormick.
The YWCA Center for Safety and Empowerment, formerly the Battered Women Task Force, has provided vitally important services to victims of sexual and domestic violence for over 35 years. Services offered include a 24-hour crisis hotline, emergency shelter, individual and group counseling, court advocacy, public education, and case management. The organization provides services to thousands of survivors each year, providing direct services to more than 2,000 survivors, taking over 2,100 hotline calls and sheltering more than 125 women and children annually.
