Surry Arts at the Barn to Hold Silent Art Auction With a Twist
SURRY -Surry arts at the Barn(SATB) will hold its first silent art auction and fund-raiser Saturday, August 12 from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Headed by SATB Board member Margret Baldwin, the event has an unusual twist to it. “We’ve asked over 35 local artists to interpret the theme “Performance” and they have in a variety of ways. We have beautiful sculptures, culinary creations, paintings, drawings, pottery, textiles, ceramics, instrument making, dramatic readings, and more. There is probably something for everyone, ” Baldwin said.
Items can be viewed beginning Tuesday, August 1 before and after regular Barn performances.
“We thought this would be an appropriate theme for the Barn since our mission is to bring high-quality and diverse performing arts to the community.
I’m amazed at how differently the artists interpreted the notion of performance,” she said.
SATB is a non-profit organization and relies on the support of the community to continue its programming, Baldwin added.
Admission is $10 for the Silent Auction and Reception. Music will be provided by Oliver Scott.
SATB is located in a 100-year-old barn at 8 Cross Road in Surry. For more information call 207-667-1308 or visit the website at satb-surry.com
