Beginning on Wednesday, September 16th, twenty-six (26) members participated in the Silver Linings Silent Art Auction community fundraiser at The Black Sheep Lounge and Coffee Roasters, 64 Niagara Street in Welland.
Each artist donated a small original painting for the fundraiser. All bids opened at $50.00, and could increase in $5.00 increments. Once the bid reached $85.00, the painting was considered sold. Two paintings were "max bid" on the first day!
The Silent Art Auction closed at 2 pm on September 27, 2020, and a total of 10 paintings were sold and $585.00 raised for Serenity House/Women’s Place in Welland. A big thanks to the Welland community for supporting local art.
Many thanks go to Lucas Spinosa, owner of The Black Sheep Lounge, for allowing us to use his space, and to all the artists who participated in this worthy cause.
