The auction invites the work of talented amateurs and experienced professional artists of all ages who retain most of the sale price! Everyone with an artistic bent, whether photography, painting, hand crafts, sculpture or woodworking is invited to participate. Grandchildren’s work is especially popular with Grandparents. It’s a fun event and a chance to schmooze with your neighbors near the end of Summer.
This has been an extremely popular event each year and draws 80 to 100 people. It is a silent Auction where you write your bids on cards by the painting or other work of art. If you win you then pay our esteemed Treasurer-Curator-Event Organizer.
Please join us at a wine and cheese reception for the opening of our gallery show of the work of Peter Mitchell. The show will run until August 12, but don’t miss the opening. Peter Mitchell has lived, hiked and photographed Lake George for more than 30 years. His discerning eye is always searching for breath-taking new perspectives. One of his current goals is to hike and photograph all 175+ mountains, peaks, hills, cliffs and ledges that surround Lake George, each with their own unique view of the lake.
With more than 120 different cards, the Pickel collection is likely the most comprehensive of cards of Huletts Landing specifically. These encompass real photo cards, the color lithography cards from Germany made from photographs taken by the Detroit Photographic Company and many more recent cards up to color photographs from Richard Dean.
