We are looking forward to our upcoming auction— the May Gala & Benefit Auction. This event will be held in the Keith House on Saturday, May 27, 2017 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. You'll have a chance to bid on amazing art from our instructors, resident artists, and students. The Puddle Jumpers will entertain us with old time tunes. Our Folk School chefs will serve delicious southern inspired fare. Items that will be available for bidding will be posted later this spring on our auction website.
We hope you will join us and auctioneers, Tim Ryan and Bob Grove, for a wonderful afternoon of togetherness, art, and camaraderie. This auction helps guarantee that the Folk School will continue to be a haven where artists can learn, work and be inspired.

Blacksmith & Fine Craft Auction 2017
The Folk School's Keith House Community Room hosts this memorable afternoon fundraiser, set for Saturday November 4 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. During Silent and Live Auctions, dozens of finely made crafts will be available for bids. Auction attendees will be tempted by forged metal, jewelry, pottery, fiber, and wood items. Attendees' bids support the Folk School's Clay Spencer Blacksmith Shop, known nationwide for its superb artist blacksmith program. The Auctions also support other acclaimed Folk School craft programs. Auction admission is free.
During the Silent Auction from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., attendees can bid on fine crafts that would enhance any home. Folk School instructors, students, and other regional artists have donated these quality pieces. During this time, browsers can preview Live Auction items before this marquee event takes place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Auctioneers Tim Ryan and Bob Grove enthusiastically lead the bids.
Just as Auction proceeds support the Folk School's renowned craft programs, many Folk School instructors gladly support the School that nurtured their creativity and artistic growth. The instructors have shown their appreciation by generously donating work to this year's Blacksmith & Fine Craft Auction.
As the Auction date draws closer, we'll be posting images of artist's items on our Blacksmith Auction website.
