Full Circle Arts LogoHickory – Full Circle Arts of Hickory would like to invite the public to participate in its largest fundraising effort of the year for our non-profit organization. FCA’s Ninth Annual Silent Auction is an opportunity to get an early start on Christmas gifts for those wonderful art lovers in your family or circle of friends. We will be filling our gallery with beautiful artwork, jewelry, special gift certificates and other items in an effort to raise enough money to keep our organization active, vibrant, and continuing to serve our community.

For the last sixteen years Full Circle Arts has provided a venue for members and non-members, professional artists and hobbyists, established and emerging artists to display their work in special exhibitions that we have organized. Many winners of the shows have received monetary prizes provided by our organization, our friends and our sponsors. We have also provided space for workshops and art classes and offered evenings of enjoyment and free food at our public art receptions.

This is a chance for many of our patrons to bring in their friends who do not know where we are located or what we have for sale and enjoy an evening of conversation and viewing the many items our gallery has to offer. Our auction begins with an opening night on Thursday Sept.7, 2017 from 6 to 8 pm and continues throughout the month ending with a Gala Auction Finale on Thursday Oct. 5th. Since this is a silent auction, bid cards will be put up next to each item and you can come in anytime to bid, but don’t let that item be stolen away from you by a higher bid amount on that final evening. Bid card numbers will be available ahead of time at our gallery or from one of our Board Members for a fee of $7.00 which will help us toward achieving our goal.

All of the refreshments that will be offered at our opening night and Gala are graciously provided by our members. The items that the public and our patrons will be bidding on are provided by our members and friends of Full Circle Arts.
