Auction, art show may satisfy your decorating urge


April 11, 1994|By ROSALIE M. FALTER

Some of us get the urge to redecorate the house along with the ritual of spring cleaning.

This can be a major project, or simply buying a few accessories to spruce things up a bit. Some new art work can add the finishing touches for a well decorated room and make a big difference.

Saturday, you will have the opportunity to find just the right thing for your decorating project at the art show and auction sponsored by St. John Lutheran Church, 300 West Maple Road.

Approximately 150 pieces of art work will be on display from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. to give people the chance to examine them closely while enjoying hors d'oeuvres, desserts and coffee with friends and neighbors.

The auction begins at 8 p.m. Original oils, lithographs, seriographs, watercolors, etchings, prints and other graphic art forms -- all framed and matted -- will be offered.

There will be no pressure to bid or purchase art work. Anyone interested in bidding will hold up a numbered program when the auctioneer proposes a bid.

All art work is guaranteed to be below gallery prices. Some are by world-renowned artists such as Delacroix, Neiman, McKnight, Erte and Gorman. The art show and auction is presented by The Heisman Fine Arts Gallery, Inc. of Ardmore, Pa.

Door prizes will be awarded during the auction.

Reduced ticket prices are available to patrons. Patrons receive six tickets for $25. Individual tickets are $5 each. Profits will benefit the building fund.

Tickets may be purchased by calling the church office at 859-0020, or Pat Lentz at 859-0983. They will also be available at the door.
