Artist constituency steps up mightily! Don’t miss Oct 4th annual art auction scene for Sawyer Free Library

It’s great to see the beautiful Matz Gallery at Sawyer Free featuring local artists again. There’s always room for the traveling exhibitions on walls and rooms elsewhere in the building, but I think the Matz gallery and Sawyer Free library sings most when it devotes its main exhibition space to local artists.

Save the date for the LIVE event! OCTOBER 4, 2017

The annual benefit exhibition is hung salon style in advance of an exciting annual live auction reception. Stop by to preview the art or leave a silent bid.  Minimum opening bids range from $40-$400. On October 4th, bring your family, friends and co-workers. There’s always a great buzz in the room.  Bid alone or ‘group-on’ with friends–and generously! You’ll help the artist and the art community in general as well as the library.

Sawyer Free Library deserves the community’s support. Here’s a list of all the 2017 participating magnanimous artists (many are repeat donors). Enjoy some photos from the exhibit to draw your attention to the art.

Jerry Ackerman, Deborah F. Aldrich, Cynthia Asaro, Anita Beloff, Baraka Robin Berger, Coco Berkman, Sheila Farren Billings, Bob Blue, Carmel Bourneuf, Isabelle K. Brown, Pamela Burke, Ann G. Campbell, Nancy Caplan, Katherine Coakley, Ray Crane, Mary Crowningshield, Mary Curcio, Susan W. Daly, Terry Del Percio-Piedmonte, Nancy Davis, Patricia Doran, Phyllis Feld, Susie Field, Karen Fitzgerald, James Formichella, Paul George, Dina Gomery, Don Gorvett, Noreen Hale, Marion Hall, Joy Halsted, Jeanne Havran, Olga Hayes, Sandra Herdman, Deanie Johnson, Phyllis J. Kaplan, Fred Kepler, Barbara Kremer,  Mary Jane Lane, Carole Loiacono, Judy Magee, Florence Martin, Mary McCarl, Roy McCauley, Perry McIntosh, Jeannie McIntyre, Danny Mears, Judith Menicocci, KT Morse, Kate Nordstrom, Christine Pitman, Mary Rhinelander, Charlotte Roberts, Sandra L Sperry, Marilyn Swift, Bonnie Sylvester, Peter Tysver, Juni Van Dyke, Jeff Weaver, Alyce Wherren, Bernica Wilcox, Curtis Wilcox, Marnie Williams, Jane Wolf, Theresa Wonson, Heidi Caswell Zander
