Boise Weekly partnered with Trey McIntyre Project on Wednesday night to host the 10th annual Cover Auction, raising almost $17,500.

The highest grossing piece was "Postcards" by local artist Heather Miller, which raked in a whopping $975.

Thanks to the Linen Building and Open Table Catering, Hillfolk Noir and auctioneer Johnna Wells, the lovely TMP dancers and Blue Dog Frame Gallery. Thanks also to Amy Atkins for emceeing the evening and to everyone who hung out, bought a piece of art and had a good time.

The proceeds from the auction are distributed through Boise Weekly's private arts grant, which is currently open to arts organizations and individual artists. Learn more about the grant on Boise Weekly's Promo page.

This auction was so annoying. I wanted to stay until the end but the slow pace, constant shout outs to TMP and annoying non-related commentary by the blonde chick made me want to off myself. Bought two pieces, wanted more... but none of the people in my group could handle anymore of it.

Annoying people can ruin it all. I hope this year will be better. I will be there for my first. I have my eye on one painting. And I'm not telling you what it is. I'm sure it will be the highest bid for sure. I bet on it!!
