Successful Art Encore showcases local talent
Assistants Sarah Rasmussen (left) and Katie Sayers (right) display a hand-stitch quilt submitted by Holly Lyons for the annual Art Encore auction Saturday night at Rustix. The quilt was one of the entries in the annual local art display, with the items then sold as a fundraiser for the Humboldt Area Arts Community. Twenty live auction items brought $2,645, with thousands more taken in on 121 silent auction items put up for sale. Proceeds from the event go to fund local scholarships and donations to art departments, art classes and exhibitions and the annual Arts Festival in Humboldt. Board member Lori Curran said the board was happy with the turnout and everyone enjoyed the evening of viewing art, eating appetizers, listening to music and dancing. Humboldt Independent photo.
