Hand-painted chairs and other whimsical furniture will be sold at an auction on November 13 to raise money for community service projects planned by students in the Portland Public Schools. The auction will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Rines Auditorium at the Portland Public Library’s main branch on Congress Street. Admission is $10 per person and $25 for a family.
The auction will feature one-of-a-kind pieces made by Painting for a Purpose, a group of women who have combined their love of painting with their interest in supporting education and empowering young people to make a difference.
Additional auction items will be donated by local artists, including David Marshall and a group of artists from the Constellation Gallery, Alex Rheault, Nanette Tanner, Diane Manzi, Portland Superintendent James C. Morse, Sr.
