Buy art to support STARCO: Silent auction in October will benefit local arts council

During the month of October, the Steelville Arts Council is having a fun and exciting Art Squared fundraiser at Gallery Zeke, located at 106 E. Main Street. Through the generosity of many of the visiting plein air artists and other artists from the area, STARCO will have 50 wonderfully painted, drawn, and crafted works all done on square watercolor and pastel paper, canvases, panels and more.  

Here's how it works: During regular gallery hours in October, patrons come in to view and bid on the art works displayed with silent auction bid sheets under each piece. The fundraiser will start October 4, and conclude with a closing reception and final bids on October 27 from 4 to 8 p.m.   
Share in the excitement of the final rounds of bidding at the fun and exciting closing reception. The evening will feature hot soup and bread, along with other snacks and drinks. The announcement of the winning bids will be at 8 p.m.

More information and updates can be found listed under the event on Gallery Zeke’s Facebook page. You may check on your bid by calling the gallery during regular hours:  Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please have the number of the artwork and artist’s name you are bidding on. The gallery phone number is 573-775-1000.
