Going once, twice... SOLD to the highest bidder!

UPDATE: These three paintings sold for $450 at auction!!

On Saturday (5/1) the Firehouse Center for the Arts will be auctioning three paintings during their annual Derby Day fundraising event. Kimm Willkenson and the entire staff were truly key for us. She jumped in with both feet by offering their entire upstairs (waterfront) gallery space to host the exhibit for two months. Tell me where else we could have found this kind of exposure in a community of vibrant (and totally booked) downtown galleries and prime retail space. Simply nowhere but here. So I'm thrilled to say the winning bids for this trio will be split between the Firehouse and Save the Children.

On the block are: I Dare Ya!, Make Believe, and Oops!

Then on June 12th the Newburyport Art Association's Annual Art Auction will auction the last three.

Whew. It's done! Both auctions will help support programs in Haiti as well as the arts in our community. Score for everyone!
