UPDATE: Silent Art Auction Fundraiser

UPDATE: It was a joy to see our community gather, in person and virtually, to bid on their favorite pieces of art at last week’s memorable silent art auction. This event raised over $15,000 for the library! We offer a huge THANK YOU to Colin Page and Kirsten Surbey of Page Gallery; the participating artists; volunteers; and all those who bid on and purchased art. Your generosity enables us to fulfill our mission to bring people together to read, connect, and discover.

———

Participating artists included Ingrid Ellison, Greta Van Campen, Susan Van Campen, Samantha Appleton, Colin Page, Gideon Bok, T. Allen Lawson, Kate Fitzgerald, Antonia Munroe, Peter Ralston, Julie Crane, Margaret Rizzio, Ni Rong, and Ileana Appleton.

The bidding is over, but the show can still be seen online at thepagegallery.com/exhibition/library.
