Mary Mavec School to Host Art Auction on 10/20

Painting is part of the creative process.

Mary Mavec Opportunity School is inviting friends, neighbors and art enthusiasts to a special Art Show & Auction on Thursday, October 20, 2016. Doors will open at 6:30 PM with program beginning at 7:00. The evening will be a showcase for the artistic creations of the school’s adult students and will take place at the school at 21701 Lake Shore Boulevard in downtown Euclid.

Each student will select one favorite piece of their artwork to be auctioned off during the show. Other pieces created by the students will be available for sale and include handcrafted pottery, paintings and collage works. Wine, cheese, hors d'oeuvres and other refreshments will be served throughout the evening.

“We have been planning this event for months and our students are excited to finally have an opportunity to show everyone what they have been working on. We think our students have created some truly unique pieces,” said Vicky Geer, the school’s director.

The Art Show & Auction will also serve as an open house where everyone is invited to visit and learn more about Mary Mavec School, the people the school serves and the services offered there.
