The Peace Arts Gallery Society is getting ready for its annual fall art auction, and continues to collect items from local artists and search for volunteers.
The gallery says it has a beautiful variety of live and silent auction pieces, and is about halfway toward its goal for the event.
Submissions from artists, artisans, and crafters are being accepted until Sept. 3. The work will be featured in a month-long exhibit throughout September before the auction goes Oct. 5.
Funds raised at the auction go to support the free Let's Art program for youth and seniors. Last year's auction raised more than $17,000.
Artist submissions can be dropped off directly at the gallery.
Those looking to volunteer for the event can call the gallery at 250-787-0993, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
