Greenbrier Valley Theatre's Art Auction and Benefit
The Greenbrier Valley Theatre, the State Professional Theater of West Virginia, held its 16th Annual Art and Benefit Auction on Saturday, July 17, 2010. The auction was a huge success.
There was a wine and Hors D'oeuvre preview party held one hour before the auction which provided attendees time to browse the artwork in advance. The admission was $10 and was applied to any art auction purchase.
During the auction, Rose Dobbins, a local artist was painting a rooster which was donated to the GVT and auctioned at the end of the evening. Rose Dobbins does remarkebly lifelike paintings of people and pets. She uses crayons, pastels, acrylics, oils, charcoal, pencil, and watercolor.
Besides the silent auction items, there were over 100 items auctioned that included oil and watercolor paintings, sculptures, jewelry, golf packages, and different pieces of furniture that was hand painted with beautiful designs, and much, much more!
I made one bid on a silent auction painting and two bids on the regular auction...below are two of my paintings from the auction.... The artist, Pamela Gatens, is a local artist from Hillsboro, WV, and paints colorful cats and flowers.
During the auction break the attendees were serenaded by "The Marvelous Wonderettes" performing Hits from the '50's & '60's!!! Performances starts July 22 through August 6.
The GVT is located at 113 East Washington Street, Lewisburg, WV.
