This week, beginning on Wednesday afternoon, Creede Arts Council will hold a silent auction of flower pots decorated by local artists. The flower pots are small, 4.5 inches tall with a 4 inch diameter at the opening and made of an unfinished ceramic. Each artist was permitted to use any materials available to them to decorate the pots, including paint, yarn, glass, paper, and wire, with any technique each preferred.
The opening bid of each one-of-a-kind work of art will be set at $20. All proceeds from the flower pot silent auction will benefit the Collins Memorial Art Park Revitalization Project, currently ongoing. The auction will close on Friday evening, August 20th, at the close of the CAC’s Third Friday Art Walk.
