Wine & Cheese Art Auction ~
“Fine Art at Your Price”
Friday, June 6, 4-8pm!
We are pleased to announce the first fundraiser at our newly renovated meetinghouse in downtown Amherst! Given the abundance of art, art lovers, art collectors, and art appreciation in the Pioneer Valley, we're planning a Silent Art Auction (with accompanying wine and cheese and piano music). From now until June 6, Sandy Sladen, Margaret Manson, Fran Plumer and Rachel Peterson will be collecting donated works of art: painting, photography, sculpture, ceramic, textile, and mixed media. All art will be "gently juried." The art is already coming in from congregation members and local valley artists, and we are delighted to say we already have a number of wonderful pieces!
Our goals for this fundraiser: to celebrate our new space with something everyone can come to; to focus our appeal for funds on the larger Amherst community; and, to give our neighbors a chance to see a new space available to rent for their own functions and events! We are asking all our congregation members to bring friends, family and neighbors to share in an evening of fine art and good fellowship.
