Evening of the Arts Tonight!

Some of the auction items available at the Evening of the Arts.

This year’s Evening of the Arts on Thursday, April 4, from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. will be at the Oneida County Event Center. The event is free, but everyone will want to bid on the 80+ items to be sold in live or silent auctions throughout the evening. 

The live auction will begin at 7:45 and will include a one-of-a-kind metal bell by Doug Adams, a watercolor painting by Dianne Adams, a 3-night stay at a cabin in Island Park, an oil painting by Jerry Camp, a firepit, and a set of outdoor chairs. The silent auction items will be divided into three groups, with the winners of the first table being announced at 7:15. Winners of items on the other two tables will be announced at 7:30 and 8:15. Get there early so you don’t miss out on a special gift for yourself or others.

All proceeds will go toward the purchase of much-needed equipment and continuing renovation of patient rooms in our local Hospital. The Evening of the Arts is the major fund raiser sponsored by the Nell J. Redfield Memorial Hospital Foundation.

The Evening of the Arts is an opportunity for local artists to showcase their talents. This year’s artists include Shelby Gunter Blackner (watercolor), Jerry Camp (oil painting), Allison Eliason (photography), Chesley Lewis (woodwork), and The Oneida Quilters (fabric). 

Another favorite display will feature Peeps. Everyone who thinks Peeps are just an Easter-time marshmallow candy will be amazed by the creative displays of multi-color chicks and bunnies in 3-dimension scenes, courtesy of the various Hospital departments.

In addition, the chalk art of the 4th graders and the watercolors of the 5th graders of Malad Elementary School and works of art by Malad Middle and High School students will
be displayed.

Music will be provided by the Malad High School Chamber Choir. Refreshments will be grab-and-go bags of popcorn prepared by the culinary arts students at Malad High School. Greeting cards featuring Oneida County scenes taken by local photographers Bob Crowther, Lloyd Bush, and Ken Timothy will be
for sale.

Tables of baskets of goods provided by local businesses, organizations, and individuals will provide opportunities to bid on useful and decorative items, including hand tools, car care products, clothing, emergency preparedness items, gift cards to restaurants, tickets to events, computer accessories, food baskets, carving boards, works of art, beauty and health care products, packages of meat, afghans and blankets, household décor, and toys, just to name a few of the items that have been donated to this fund raiser.
