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!

Watch for previews of artwork and reminders on Facebook. For more information, contact Diana Peach at peachlee123@gmail.com or check the webpage at http://www.vernoniahandsonart.org.

    This is a big deal, both for these kids and the arts programs in general. There is no dinner of champions for art students–but there is the auction. Please command show your support!
