Gail Harker Center for Creative Arts is where I am currently taking my Level 2 Machine and Hand Embroidery class. They held a Black, White and Red exhibition this weekend and on Tuesday, there will be an online auction.
Black, White and Red, features 82 miniature works by the Center’s students. After the exhibition, the 5×7 inch works will be auctioned to raise money towards the completion of a permanent art gallery at the Center. An online auction will take place Oct. 9.
You can look at the works that will be auctioned off by going here. I donated a piece and if you want to see it, look for number 74 in the slide show. There are some really nice pieces of art being auctioned off so if you’re interested, the auction guidelines are listed below.
