Gala Art Auction Announced by Calvert Library Foundation
Saturday, October 25, starting at 7:00pm, the Calvert Library Foundation will host a live art auction at the Family Life Center at St. John Vianney in Prince Frederick to benefit the Calvert Library system. The gala auction will feature original, framed works of art provided by the professional New York art house of Arin Ross Auctions in partnership with Marlin Art Inc. Art will be available for all budgets and preferences. Sports and music memorabilia will also be auctioned. The auction will include over 100 works by international, professional artists plus generous donations of art, jewelry, excursions, services and more -- all presented by an engaging, professional auctioneer. Additionally, there will be free “Taste of the Region” hors d’oeuvres, wine tasting and live jazz, an art door prize valued at $150-200, a 50/50 raffle and cash bar.
Tickets are $15 dollars in advance, and $20 dollars at the door.
Event chair Kip At Lee observed, “Live, professional art auctions are an evening of fast-moving entertainment, and this promises to be among the best! They’re good fun, whether you buy a work of art or not. A perfect date night!”
The doors will open at 7:00pm for refreshments, music and an opportunity to review the art to be presented; the auction itself will start promptly at 8:00pm. Credit and debit cards, checks and cash will be accepted. All proceeds will benefit the Calvert Library, serving all the people of Calvert County.
Tickets and additional information are available at all Calvert Library branches. You can also visit http://calvertlibraryfoundation.com or call 410-535-0291. When you purchase a ticket, you will have an opportunity to indicate the type of art works you would like to be made available at the auction.
