Alfred Montessori School Spring Art Auction

Alfred Montessori, a little school with a big heart, is planning an art auction for Saturday, April 5, 2014 to help raise funds for a community project.

Artists of local and national acclaim have already committed to donate pieces for the event, which will be held from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Alfred Village Hall.

One can expect to bid on ceramic, glass, sculptural and functional pieces by artists including Angus Powers, Amy Powers, Betsy Kent, Steve Edwards, Matt Metz, Linda Sikora, Mike Griffin, Kristin Buchholz, Angie To, Sarah Powers, J. Michael Powers, Robin Howard, Pat Edwards, Marcia Lichtman, Randi Fridmann, Katie Greene, and many more.

Tickets will be $15 each or 2 for $25, and will be available beginning Friday, Feb. 21. Admission includes brunch appetizers, beverages, and live music for the first hour, with child care available at the Montessori School for a nominal fee.

For more information, to purchase tickets, or make a donation, call Carman Banzaca, Montessori School Director, at 607.587.9334, or visit www.alfredmontessori.com.

Funds raised by the auction will help renovate and improve the Mike Kenyon community playground in Alfred, a cause that will benefit all of the children in the community. Twenty years ago, the community rallied to create the existing playground and the time has come to update the structure. We have consulted the original playground designers for direction as we plan renovations.
