Bidders will be able to choose from hundreds of items at the Jacoby Arts Center's first 50/50 Art Auction Sunday.
Several hundred auction items have been submitted to Jacoby Arts Center for its first 50/50 Art Auction Sunday.
A git-framed landscape painting by Italian Angelo Corrugia is offered by an Alton collector. Corrugia was an architect who also designed St. Ambrose Catholic Church in St. Louis. The painting is among many by noted artists. Work of Arthur Towata, Leah Wuellner, Donn Warden, Crystal Jackson and Jeff Vaughn will be auctioned. A collection of framed Mississippi Lime prints, watercolors and oils are on offer.
A sculpture by Leo Pavish joins many other bronze, pottery, glass, porcelain and antique furniture. Vintage antique decorative items include pewter, clocks, lamps and furniture. Primitive pottery, memorabilia and jewelry will be offered.
JAC welcomes bidders with live music, cash bar and refreshments. A corking fee will be charged for those bringing their own wine.
Half of the proceeds from the auction will go to the sellers and half will go to the arts center.
The buyer who spends the most during the day also will go home with a donated iPad mini, and the person who spends the most on a single item will earn a $100 gift card donated from Target.
Doors open at 1 p.m. with oral auction at 2 p.m. Checkout should be completed by 5 p.m. A bid paddle and catalog are $10. For more information, call JAC at (618) 462-5222 or visit the website at www.jacobyartscenter.org.
