Donations Sought for "Hidden Treasures!" Auction

May 23, 2007

Donations are being sought for a special fundraising auction to benefit The Art Gallery at the Paul Creative Arts Center, the Seacoast's premier art museum where visitors gather to enjoy changing exhibitions, music, lectures, poetry readings, and receptions.

The Hidden Treasures auction will offer paintings, prints, drawings, ceramics, and photographs, as well as jewelry, textiles, glass, and collectibles made by many local artists, including, among others, Jennifer Benn, Tim Christensen-Kirby, Christopher Cook, Eve Corey, Arthur DiMambro, Jane Kaufmann, Scott Schnepf, and Valerie Sobel.

The auction will take place Saturday, June 23, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the gallery. Advance reservations are recommended ($35 per person or $60 per couple) and may be made online at www.unh.edu/art-gallery or by calling 2-3712.

Items sought include original works of art, photographs, glass, jewelry, small furniture items, textiles, and collectibles in good condition. Donations are tax deductible, although donors are responsible for securing the estimated value of each item, as The Art Gallery cannot provide appraisals. Items not sold will be returned.

Devin Moisan of Devin Moisan Auctioneers, Inc., in Dover, will be the

guest auctioneer. His gallery is open most Thursdays to provide free verbal valuations. For more information, call Moisan Auctioneer’s at (603) 953-0022 or visit www.moisan-inc.com.

Hidden Treasures is organized by members of The Art Gallery's board of advisors and volunteers. Its permanent collection includes 1,500 historical and modern works by American and European artists. The museum welcomes visitors throughout the academic year and is open to students, faculty, members, and the general public free of charge.

To donate items contact Cindy Farrell at 2-3712, or by e-mail at art.gallery@unh.edu, no later than June 8. For more information, visit www.unh.edu/art-gallery.

We welcome your story ideas, letters, photos, notable events, achievements, obituaries and/or memorium.

If you would like to submit an item, please contact the Editor at 862-1567.

Deadline for submissions is Tuesdays at 4 pm.
