Works will be sold at the silent auction. Artists will set the minimum price for their works and receive that amount for all works sold. Any amount bid above the minimum price will benefit the Arts@Peace program which provides free, high-quality cultural events to the community. These happenings include the popular silent movies, with Walt Strony at the theater organ, as well as a variety of guest artists from around the country and beyond.

The first Art Show and Wine Tasting, also held at Peace Lutheran Church, was a fun, well-attended event with many artists successfully selling their works. Artists are encouraged to display a maximum of two pieces of smaller art (approximately 12” X 12”) with a price of $250 or less.  All mediums are encouraged with the exception of clothing, purses and jewelry.
