PHOTOS: Silent auction at Visual Arts Centre showcases local artists

The annual fundraiser had attendees bid on anonymous art

On Friday night the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre held its annual silent auction and fundraiser. About 80 people were in attendance.

Attendees bid on anonymous artwork and the artists behind the pieces were revealed at the end of the night.

“The arts centre is here for the community and we are primarily run by volunteers,” said executive director Victoria Strange. “As a non-profit society we are extremely grateful for the support, and for everyone who works behind the scenes.”
