2012 Plainfield Garden Tour Art Auction
This year the Friends asked people to submit their artwork in a contest to be used on the Garden Tour tickets. There were so many wonderful submissions! The winners were:
- First Place: Olivia Roath
- Second Place: Carol Mongan
- Third Place: Barbara Harris
- Under 12 Winner: Audrey Havenor
The artwork is now on display in the library, and you’re invited to purchase it! The starting price for each piece was selected by the artist, and is listed in the book in front of the large display case. Bidding will end May 31st, at which time the winning purchasers will be contacted by phone.
Money from both Garden Tour tickets and the Art Contest Silent Auction directly benefit the library. Have you ever attended a program at the library? If so, you’ve benefited from our Friends group! Friends money helps support library programming, including speaker fees, supplies, and snacks.
