A few of those in attendance got a great deal on some excellent artwork last weekend.
Ponoka’s First Baptist Church hosted an art auction and sale fundraiser on Oct. 1 with several local artists displaying their works along with many wonderful pieces being donated for the auction portion.
Church member Tina Teerling explained the event was in support of the organization’s effort to add to their facility.
“This first annual art auction is a fundraiser to help us with our plans to construct a new sanctuary to the building,” Teerling said.
“We have a lot of talented people with a lot of different mediums that show many of God’s gifts.”
An auctioneer from VJV volunteered to conduct the auction which included a handcrafted wooden table with marble inlays, a homemade quilt and a unique knife with a handcrafted beautiful handle and a homemade leather case.
It wasn’t immediately known how much the organization raised on the day.
