art wall logoFind unique gifts and art for personal pleasure at the eleventh annual Art Wall Silent Auction the week of Feb. 8-11, 2016. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Organization of Faculty Wives & Women Faculty Doris Simon Student Scholarship Fund.

Twenty pieces of art by 18 artists will be available for bidding, including watercolors, pastels,  computer compositions, mixed media,  collage, cyanotype, and photography. Art has been donated by previous exhibitors of the Art Wall project. Take advantage of this opportunity to contribute much-needed funding for medical school student scholarships!

Included in the offerings will be work by four popular artists who have generously contributed to every Art Wall auction: watercolors by Dr. Regina Verani and Patty Browning; color pencil sketch by Philip Chang; and computer compositions by Eugenia Mileykovskaya.  Two faculty wives have generously contributed to the fund-raiser this year (Donna Buja’s mixed media pieces, and Lynne Arnett’s collage).  Dr. Rita Swinford also will provide one of her popular photographs.
