Picket Fence Auction
September 27, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Oxford Business Association is sponsoring its 9th Annual Picket Fence Auction on Saturday, October 14 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Oxford Community Center. Local artists lovingly painted small sections of picket fence that have been located at various locations around town for viewing. The auction begins promptly at 5 p.m.
Artists have done a beautiful job of making these “canvases” a unique piece of artwork. Local residents and visitors to Oxford have enjoyed taking a walking tour about town to see the fences throughout the last few months. Fences are located at the Oxford Ferry, Robert Morris Inn, Brewers Boatyard, Highland Creamery, Cutts and Case, Tred Avon Yacht Club, Oxford Town Hall, Oxford Museum and Oxford Yacht and Home.
As in previous years, a portion of the proceeds from the auction will be donated to a charity of the artist’s choice. Charities this year include Talbot Humane, Character Counts Mid Shore, Crashbox Theater, Oxford Community Center, Oxford Kids Camp, Guiding Eyes for the Blind, Bio Diversity Maryland, Talbot County Garden Club and Holy Trinity Church. Artists participating in the auction this year include Maggii Sarfaty, Jane McCarthy, Hilary Evans, Sally Fronk, Peggy Morey, Will White, Cherry Dearie, Cid Collins Walker and members of the Bible Praise & Prayer Painters.
The event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served. For those who have not viewed the picket fences around town, visit portofoxford.com. Proxy bids are available for those unable to attend the auction by emailing email@example.com. Contact Marlee331@atlanticbb.net.
