The John C. Campbell Folk School will hold its annual Gala & Benefit Auction Saturday, June 11, from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Keith House. This special evening will give attendees the opportunity to support the Folk School by bidding on pieces of art and craft of the highest quality. Attendees will also enjoy delicious Southern fare, drinks, and live music, as they peruse the sundry items available for the bidding. A silent auction will kick off the evening, followed by local auctioneer, Bob Grove, leading the spirited bidding during the live auction.
Pieces represented in the auction include works of pottery, basketry, woodturning, metalwork, textiles, jewelry, painting, woodcarving, and more. Talented local and national artists generously donated some of their finest pieces for this year’s auction. Proceeds from this annual fundraiser will benefit general programming at the Folk School.
