Montgomery Museum hosts Saturday silent auction
BLACKSBURG — Works from some of the area’s most talented young artists will be up for grabs Saturday at the Montgomery Museum and the Lewis Miller Regional Art Center in Christiansburg.
From 3 to 5 p.m., the museum will host a silent auction to benefit its “Raise the Roof” campaign, which will include a handful of winning projects from the “Color Your County” art contest at the Creekmore Law Firm’s gallery, The Artful Lawyer, last month.
The contest tasked kindergarten through 12th-grade Montgomery County students with creating pieces depicting aspects of historical relevance to the county.
Awards were given in five mediums as voted on by the public at the firm’s “People’s Choice Voting Night.” The categories were painting, pottery, mixed media, pen and ink, and other.
First-place winners received $20 gift certificates from Mish Mish, second-place winners received $10 gift cards to The Frosty Parrot, and third-place winners walked away with a movie pass to The Lyric Theatre in Blacksburg.
Since the contest, the 38 works have been on display at the firm’s office in Blacksburg.
Along with the student works being auctioned, more than 25 items with an estimated total value of almost $3,000 will be available for bidding, according to Creekmore marketing manager Diana Francis.
