Art On 45 Silent Auction

Saturday night was the Art On 45 silent auction in Ruston Louisiana. The event was held at Rumo’s Barber Shop. All proceeds went to NCLAC’s program at the Boys and Girls Club. This was a juried show. My first!

NCLAC is receiving a $3,300 check for their outreach program with the Boys & Girls Club, and $400 worth of fine art supplies were donated for them. There was no admission fee, but attendees were asked to donate fine art supplies.

The biddings started at $50 for each piece. 10 pieces received one or two bids. 28 pieces had between 3 and 8 bids, and 2 pieces 12 or 13 bids. 10 pieces sold for $60 or under. 14 pieces sold for between $70 and $90. 13 pieces received biddings between $100 and $175. The highest bids were between $240 and $275 for three pieces.

17 artists were new to ART ON 45 this year, and many of them also new to the audience, because those artists were not local or because they have just started showing. 

It was a a wonderful community event. Food and drinks were donated. An aweseome DJ livened things up, and there were small sculptures on display. Posters from all four annual Art on 45 events were for sale as well.

      Hi Paula! It sounds like a great event. Wish I could have been there in person. It’s terrific to know that a little painting can actually do some good in the world 😉
      I was at my brother’s last night, and slept with the window open… can’t do that here. LOL. It was a good sleep. 😉 Happy creating to you!

      Aww, thanks, Christine. I haven’t been able to paint much, so it is a good feeling to know I have done something these first few months of the year ;o)

    What a terrific event to attend, venue to exhibit your art, and on top of that to know your work went to someone whose special corner will be beautified by your art, and the purchase money went to a good cause! Congratulations!
