BLUE HILL, Maine – The Blue Hill Public Library will hold a silent auction of “fresh paint” pieces by local artists as part of a new fundraising event, known as ‚ÄúPaint the Peninsula,‚ÄĚ from 4:30- 7 p.m. Saturday, July 16, at the library. Artists will spend the morning and early afternoon producing original paintings of their favorite scenes around the Blue Hill Peninsula. The pieces will then be brought back to the library and displayed where the public is invited to bid on them while enjoying a reception with wine and hors d’oeuvres.
Artists will set a reserve price for their work and will donate at least 50% of the sale price to the Library. The Blue Hill Library is funded as an independent non-profit organization. It relies heavily on the generosity of donors and income from fundraisers to meet its annual operating budget. For more information, call 374-5515.
