Greenbrier Valley Theatre's  Art Auction and Benefit

 

GVT

 

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. 

 

GVT Art and Benefit AuctionThere 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.

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!

It is so neat that local communities have such talented artists and preformers in them to put on this type of show and auciton.

Love the paintings that you selected.

What a wonderful way to enjoy the evening and hopefully win the bid on some desired art work.
