Art auction to raise funds

July 26, 2012 by  

The Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts (FCCA) is presenting the John Holmfeld Art Collection Exhibit and Auction from July 29 – August 31. The Center is open from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm from Wednesday through Monday and admission is free. Proceeds will go towards supporting the FCCA Building Fund.

John Holmfeld was a patron of the FCCA who died in 2011. His estate has donated 61 art works to the auction, including those of some well-known regional artists. Some of the works up for auction include ‘Beach Napper’ by Judith Merrill, ‘Landscape with Tree Shadows’ by Ed King, and ‘Joan’s Still Life’ by Paula Rose. Bids start at $50 and all items will remain on display until the end of the exhibit. The works that are for sale are listed on the FCCA website with recommended prices.

No doubt Fredericksburg printing companies have helped with the creation and printing of the various flyers that are available to advertise this fundraising event. Flyers are one of the most inexpensive ways to advertise and also the most versatile in terms of distribution, which is why they tend to be heavily used to promote events like this. They can be sent through the mail, delivered to local houses by volunteers, handed out on the street outside the FCCA, or distributed to public libraries and community centers.

Even visitors who do not plan to bid on any of the artworks can still enjoy viewing these wonderful examples of modern American art until the end of August.
