Art Out of The Attic
October 19 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm$20
People’s attics are full of art that is no longer wanted for a variety of reasons. It is precisely these items that the Ontario County Historical Society is looking to gather up and recycle to others for their new fundraising event, “Art out of the Attic”.
The fund raiser will take place in a silent auction format the weekend of October 19 -20, 2018 at the Ontario County Historical Society located at 55 North Main Street in Canandaigua. There will be an opening reception and preview of the items to be auctioned on Friday October 19 from 4 to 7 pm. The silent auction will continue from 10 AM to 5 PM the next day, Saturday October 20. Winning bids will be announced at 5 PM that day. Proceeds will help fund the operation and maintenance of the historic Bragdon museum in which the Society’s headquarters and museum are located.
“The key to the success of this event”, said Historical Society’s Executive Director, Ed Varno, “is the collection of the art”. Several days have been set aside to give the public ample opportunity to donate their unwanted art pieces for this worthy cause.
