Art Show and Auction to Benefit Easton Farmers' Market

 More than 40 original works of art donated by local artists who have drawn inspiration from the vibrancy of America’s oldest continuous open-air farmers’ market will be auctioned off this Sunday afternoon, September 15, at the third annual Art for the Market benefit.

To be held at Nurture Nature Center, 518 Northampton Street, the event will feature a preview and reception with light farm-to-table fare and live music by jazz guitarist Joe Wagner from 2 to 4 p.m.

Artworks will then be auctioned live starting at 4 p.m.

The collection includes a wide array of medium ranging from oils and watercolors to paper collage and salvaged wood, depicting pastoral, market, animal and nature scenes.

Featured artists include John Schmidtberger of Upper Black Eddy, whose plein air style paintings have been lauded by Fine Art Connoisseur and The New York Times, salvage wood sculptor Rich Cook of Easton, and  two time best-in-show winner, Sheila Sabol of Lancaster.

All auction proceeds benefit Easton Farmers’ Market. The event is sponsored by Artskills and Arts Community of Easton.

"It’s a wonderful opportunity to purchase a piece of local art that celebrates nature and  supports the fresh food revolution," said Art for the Market organizer Alice Ziegler.
