AUCTION TO FEATURE ART OF THE PIEDMONT
Local Artists Join Forces to Support School
MIDDLEBURG, Virginia (January 4, 2013). Distinguished works of art will grace the Middleburg Community Center on Friday, February 22th, in an unprecedented auction of original artwork from the community’s best local artists. Doors for this fundraising event will open at 5:30 P.M., and proceeds will benefit the Middleburg Montessori School.
With more than twenty committed artists, the auction will showcase the art of Dana Volkert, Misia Broadhead Barham, Charlie Matheson, Cathy Zimmerman, Dana Lee Thompson, Nancy Bass, Hwa Crawford, Donna Clark, Antonia Walker, Gail Guirreri-Maslyk, Anthony Barham, Lilla Ohrstrom, among others.
A sample of the featured artists:
Local artist Dana Volkert captures the natural world, isolated and enlarged, in abstract beauty. Her compelling work has been exhibited in galleries worldwide and is a must for the modern collector.
Antonia Walker, whose works are represented in many collections including the Arts-in-Embassy Program of The State Department, has been a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome. She has studied under Spanish Sculptor Benjamin Saul as well as Brittany, France-based artist William Woodward. Antonia is most well known for her oil paintings of the Virginia countryside and images of Italy and France.
Many of these artists have websites, and new and old collectors alike are encouraged to explore the artists’ work ahead of time.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with these talented artists,” explained BethAnn Slater, Head of School of Middleburg Montessori. “Ultimately, we are all coming together to benefit the children in our community.”
Middleburg Montessori School is a primary Association Montessori Internationale accredited environment that for more than 30 years has educated children, age 2-½ through 6, in the Middleburg community. In Fall 2011, the school opened a new elementary classroom for children age 6 through 14, which is now too an AMI accredited classroom. The benefit, organized by parents and friends, will help the 501(c)(3) non-profit school to continue growing their primary and elementary programs.
