Mark your calendars! On May 26st the Vernonia Hands On Art Center, the local non-profit arts and heritage support group, presents the eighth annual Jr. Salmon Auction.
A fundraiser for the Vernonia Schools arts program, the auction features the amazing salmon creations of Vernonia art students. The students are supplied with blank pressboard salmon on which to craft their own unique visions. In addition to salmon, students have worked their magic on small furniture items that will also be included in the auction.
Beginning at 7:00PM in the VHS Commons, the salmon will be auctioned off with a minimum starting bid of $10.00. Proceeds from the auction support Vernonia School Arts, Scholarships, and Hands On Art programs. Over $10,000 has been donated to the arts programs to date!
The doors open at 6:30. Enjoy live music performed by students under the direction of Matthew Urban, visit the Band Boosters for a bite to eat, and chat with Vernonia’s talented young artists while you browse their creations. Be sure to sign up at the bidder’s table and be ready to go at 7:00!
