HURLEYVILLE, NY — Art students in Sullivan County will be auctioning works of art and chairs at Sullivan County Museum on Sunday May 20 from 2 to 4 p.m., as part of a scholarship fundraiser created to benefit area high school seniors who are planning on majoring in art when they attend college.
Over the past couple of months, students from our local high schools and BOCES have found chairs and transformed them through paint and other media into works of art based on artists and artistic movements. There is no limit to the imaginative efforts of these students. While some chairs are functional, many are whimsical and meant to be enjoyed as art. Many art teachers are also creating chairs. Other student artwork will also be auctioned off.
The museum will be opening its doors at 1 p.m. to allow time for viewing the lots. If you see a piece of artwork that you would like to have, you can place a bid in the bid box next to the chair. The highest bid in the bid box will start the auction for that chair the day of the auction. Call 845/295-4033.
