ANNUAL SILENT AUCTION SUNDAY APRIL 19
For 20 years an annual Silent Auction has taken place in the Spring at Arts Place Gallery, King Street, in Port Colborne. Each and every year Gallery patrons and the public mark the date in anticipation of rare finds that will grace their walls and add creative originality to their home décor. Arts Place has strived to present quality – not quantity for their Annual Silent Auctions and the event has proven year after year to be a fun event and a place to bid on, and hopefully leave with, a distinctive and special piece of art. Notable artists and creators generously donate art and other unique objects to the gallery for the Silent Auction. The artists’ offerings at the Silent Auction provide a wonderful opportunity for the public to purchase one of a kind and unique articles at very reasonable prices. Many of the paintings and objects d’art are original paintings and priced well below normal gallery pricing, making the purchase a good bargain. This year there is a large assortment of books as well. Any monies realized from the Silent Auction sales fund local art projects, cultural events and art education in the community.
The Silent Auction runs from 2:00 to 4:00 on Sunday, April 19 with preview dates on the Friday and Saturday prior to the event.
The Gallery is located at 714 King Street, Port Colborne and is open Thursday to Sunday from Noon to 4:30 p.m.
