The Oconto Falls Friends of the Library are having their first ever Summer Garden Art Silent Auction. The event includes donated items from a number of local artist and wanna be artists. Four of the top 8th grade students at Washington Middle School got into the act as a last minute “Final Project.” Using a classic cracked shovel that had seen better days, they turned it into a metal and wood canvas for their creativity. Working with WMS Art Teacher Karen Knoerzer, they shared in work to transform the old tool into something that will have a cherished place in the lucky highest bidder’s home.
This piece and several other items will be on display for bidding at the Oconto Falls Community Library beginning June 10. It’s worth stopping by to say ‘Hi” and check out one of your favorite books for summer reading. For more information, contact Friends of the Library President Amy Dessart or Librarian Joan Denis at the Oconto Falls Community Library at (920) 846-2673.
