Staff Art Show

B Artful: A Staff Art Show


January 19-February 20

Baltimore County Public Library has some talented artists on staff...and we can prove it. From January 19 through February 20, the Foundation, in cooperation with the Staff Association and the Hereford Branch, is sponsoring B Artful: A Staff Art Show in the gallery space at the Hereford Branch. Much of the work will be available for sale, with a portion of the proceeds as set by each artist benefiting the Foundation.

Artists Reception

Join us for a reception on Friday, February 7, 6 p.m.-9 p.m., at the Hereford Branch, to celebrate our many talented artists here at Baltimore County Public Library. There will be finger foods, wine and live music provided by Baltimore musician/songwriter Caleb Stine. Tickets are $10 each (exhibiting artists attend for free). The People's Choice award will be announced, as well as the winners of the silent auction.

Silent Auction

In addition to the exhibition, there will also be a silent auction from January 19 through February 7 for special items created by our staff, as well as a People’s Choice Voting for Favorite Artwork.


Before you can bid, first you must register a bidder number on the auction website. Select online registration (or sign in) at the top of the page and follow the instructions on screen. If you’ve used the Auctria before, you can use your established email and password.


Select the catalog from the menu and view the items. You can bid using the website or download the Auctria Mobile Bidding app to your phone from the Apple Store or Play Store (you must register before you can log into the app). Once you have registered, you can access the app. If you have registered for other events, B Artful will be available to select from a menu upon log in. If this is your first Auctria event, the app will open on the B Artful homepage.

To bid, you may have to complete the event registration (a credit card is required to bid) at this time.


You do not have to be present to win. You will be notified if you are outbid, giving you the opportunity to increase your bid. You will be notified by text and/or email if you win, with payment instruction included. Items won can be collected from the Hereford Branch at the close of the auction.

Thank you to our sponsors!
