-A A +A

The Marion County Arts and Humanities Council’s 9th annual art auction and dinner will be held Friday, Oct. 18, at Henning’s Restaurant at Rosewood.
Music, featuring Dan Kelly and the Wheelers, will begin at 6 p.m., and dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. Advance tickets are available at The Family Frame Shop and at the Farm Bureau office, or from arts council members.
Among the many artistic offerings is an oil painting by Lucy Lancaster entitled “Wes and Dr. John.” The painting is of two well-known Lebanon characters, Dr. John Ratliff and Wes Daugherty, in their later years.
Focusing on the beauty of this community are Brenda Followell’s “Autumn Sunrise at Rolling Fork River”, Judy Bradshaw’s “Fall at Fagan Branch”, and Katina Johnson’s “Poppy’s Farm.” All are original oils on canvas.
For the collector, a pair of Hummel prints will be auctioned. Photographer Seth Benningfield offers his perspective of “Bradfordsville School.”
“Paradise Bird”, a framed pastel by Sara Hernandez and a still life, oil on canvas, by Mary Crum Spalding are also among the listings, along with a pair of geometric abstract paintings, “Eccentric Streets” by Mimi Crum. Kassy Jaglowicz will bring her expressionistic style back with her offerings.
“The Perfect Fall Day” includes all the colors of fall in the hand painted silk scarf donated by Angela Owen.
Jama Watts’ “Camelian Beauty” necklace features a slice of camelian agate, surrounded by seed beads and accented with dyed freshwater pearls.
Jewelry will be presented by jeweler Patty May Brown, and Barbara Zink will present her handcrafted necklace and matching earrings.
The silent auction will include tickets to Norton Center for the Arts, Bluegrass Festival Show and Kentucky Classic Theater’s “Aristocats.” We will also have a weekend get-away package. Again for the collector, there will be a Wedgewood cup and saucer, along with many other items.
