DUMMERSTON- The River Gallery School is hosting its annual benefit auction on Saturday, May 10, at the lovely Scott Farm. This year marks the 24th auction and this spring evening will be filled with lively music, delicious appetizers from Terri Ziter of A Vermont Table, and beautiful items for bid. This is always a festive event as RGS supporters come out to celebrate the importance of art in the community.

The live auction features trips and adventures, including one week in Tuscany, a South African safari, and a weekend in Los Angeles. Local businesses and artists have filled both the silent and live auctions with a first-rate assortment of items, including passes to the Yellow Barn, Mount Snow, and the Montshire Museum, and gift certificates to the best local restaurants and inns, including Peter Havens, Chesterfield Inn, and Three Stones. As always, the auction features unique and original art from a talented group of local painters, sculptors, and potters, including Walter Slowinski, Petria Mitchell, Mallory Lake, Tim Allen, and many more.

The silent auction begins at 5 pm and the excitement of the live auction begins at 7. Admission to this event is $25 and includes a paddle number, delicious appetizers, coffee and dessert, live music, and a great time. Pre-buy tickets are available on the RGS website and tickets are also for sale at the door. All proceeds ensure the lasting vitality of the River Gallery School.
