Fairmont State and Fairmont General Hospital are sponsoring the Gala Art Auction to benefit Main Street Fairmont on Saturday, Oct. 21.

The preview begins at 6:30 p.m., and the auction begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Fairmont Field Club. Tickets are $15 per person. Hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar will be provided. For tickets or more information, call Vera Sansalone at 366-0468 or Barbara Wise at 366-6269.

"Even if you think you might not bid on art, your attendance at the event benefits Main Street Fairmont," Sansalone said.

The event will be a fun, interactive evening with finger foods and music. All art to be auctioned is framed, and prices will range from $50 up. Some original works and many lithographs and gliclees will be available. There will also be some estate jewelry, painted furniture and sports memorabilia. Marlin Art will present a Family Heirloom Program that can turn any photograph into a hand-finished canvas work. Major credit cards will be accepted.

Some of the artists with works to be included in the auction are Neiman, Zule, Delacroix, Tarkay, Rockwell, Lui, Picasso and a new Italian artist, Borelli. Specific artwork may be requested by calling the Main Street Fairmont office at 366-0468. For more information, visit Marlinart.com.
