The Kinnelon Fine Arts Silent Auction takes place every other year at the Kinnelon Library - which means the last one took place in 2008 - and features the works of talented local artists who donate their works to benefit the Kinnelon Library.
This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Kinnelon Library and completely organized and brought to life by the Kinnelon Center for Lifelong Learning [CLL] and the Art Committee.
For the record, 90% of the artists who donate works for the Kinnelon Silent Auction actively participate in CLL oil painting and watercolor courses.
Here's how the Kinnelon Fine Arts Silent Auction works.1. Review the artwork on display from November 1st through 18th at the Kinnelon Library during Library hours.
2. Place a bid on the artwork that inspires. Obtain a bidding instruction sheet and bid number from from the Library Circulation Desk or the Library Volunteer Office. Use the bid number to enter your bid.
3. Periodically monitor in case someone else has upped your ante. Rebid until 8pm on November 18th.
4. Be on pins and needles until the reception and auction results are announced on Thursday November 18th.
5. Return home victorious with your unique Kinnelon work[s] of art!
Now, it seems you don't have to be present to win. That's dangerous. Someone else might easily make your bid irrelevant....
Ron Leavesley tells me that over 60 paintings - oil, watercolors and sketches - will be on display starting Monday, November 1st.
Talk about a wonderful way to bring the Kinnelon community together to experience Kinnelon artwork and get to know our Kinnelon artists while benefiting our Library at the same time!
Will you let me know which works inspire you?
Happy Kinnelon Fine Arts Silent Auction Bidding!
