The Marion County Arts and Humanities Council will be holding their 8th annual art auction on Friday, Oct. 14, at Henning’s Restaurant. The event will begin with dinner at 6:30 p.m., with live music to accompany the meal. Advance tickets are still available at Family Frame Shop, Farm Bureau or any of the arts council members. Come early and preview the auction items.
The art auction will feature local artists’ original work. Brenda Followell has donated one of her wonderful landscapes, featuring Marion County, “Calvary.” We will have an oil painting “Horses at Sunset”, by Katina Johnson, and an oil painting, “Face of a Horse” by Mary Crum Spalding.
Always a hit with the crowd, Kassy Jaglowicz, is surprising us again with her ceativity. Judy Bradshaw has contributed her two-piece skyscape of Lebanon “Cinematic Skyview,” and donated “Old Dog Tray” print by Barry Michaels. A print from his original oil painting, “Lincoln Legacy,” has been contributed by Dale Reinscheld .
Award-winning jewelry designer, Jama Watts, is contributing “Cameo In Pearls,” a vintage-style cameo encircled by bead embroidery, backed by leather and accented by fringe with pearls. Also featured will be Jewelry by Patty May Brown, along with a hand-painted silk scarf by Angela Owen.
Another surprise for the event is a painting by local artist, Lois Leake, “Brass Bucket with Grapes.” Photographer Stephen Lega has contributed a framed photo of a statue at Loretto Motherhouse entitled “Personal Jesus.”
And newcomer to the event, Lucy Lancaster, is donating her oil painting “Evening.” We also have Agnes Clayton’s print of “BoHo”. (For many years, BoHo entertained here during Ham Days.)
We also have a ceramic teapot with hand-sculpted face by David Waltz, awarding winning ceramic artists with Kentucky Crafted. Photographer Seth Benningfield will also have a framed photo.
We have a few contributions still coming in - so look for those surprises, as well as the items on the silent auction.
