When: Fri., May 8, 7-9 p.m. 2015
Barre’s Studio Place Arts hosts its annual fundraiser and silent auction this week to support the nonprofit’s arts programming. The theme is fishing, so attendees are encouraged to catch some art. They can practice their two-step, too, with live Cajun music by the Green Mountain Playboys. Food and a cash bar round out the fun. And did we mention the art? “Gone Fishing” is title of a 23-artist mixed-media show in the Main Floor Gallery. In keeping with the piscine motif, artist Judd Levine will demonstrate freestyle fly-tying. In the Third Floor Gallery, Michael Heffernan offers 2D desserts with “Sweet Images,” his exhibition of still-life paintings. The artworks will remain on view through the month. Bidding for items in the silent auction has already begun and will conclude at the BASH on Friday, May 8, 7-9 p.m.
Price: $15 advance; $25 at the door
