NORTH CONWAY, NH – The Mt. Washington Valley Arts Association invites the community to their annual auction on August 20th, at the Red Jacket Mountain View Resort, at 6:30pm. “The Starving Artist Auction & Dance” is the signature fundraising event of the Arts Association and is essential for keeping the arts thriving in the Mt. Washington Valley. This year’s event is unique in offering fine art donated by local and regional artists of the organization including, Jan Eskedal, John Girouard, JP Goodwin, Rebecca Klementovich, Carl Owen and Sean Stull. Other donated auction items will include vacation experiences, a helicopter ride, handcrafted furniture, recreational activities and fine dining. It promises to be a fun evening of dancing to the music of DJ Cooper Fox, and the excitement of a silent auction and a raffle.
The Live Auction portion of the evening will be led by Janice Crawford, Executive Director of the Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce. A cash bar will be available and hors d’oeuvres will be served. Artists, members of the organization and the community are encouraged to support the arts and bring friends to this exciting event. Tickets can be purchased for $25.00 each at Association’s Visual Arts Center or Vintage Frameworks, both at Norcross Place, North Conway and through PayPal at www.mwvarts.org. The Mt. Washington Valley Arts Association is an independent, community focused, non-profit organization which exists to promote the study, appreciation, and display of the visual arts, particularly the art of the Mt. Washington Valley. We provide educational opportunities for the study, appreciation and practice of fine arts and crafts to artists and community members of all ages and abilities.
