Auction of chair art to help nursing association

Jul 16, 2020
Garden Chairs by Conny Hatch.

Belfast — Local artists will be turning chairs into art for a Silent Auction to support the Belfast Public Health Nursing Association. The association provides health care and other critical support services to the most disadvantaged and vulnerable members of the community. It contributes to helping Waldo County General Hospital in Belfast prepare for emergencies including natural or man-made disasters, through education, providing treatment, holding community immunization clinics, and monitoring outbreaks. The association also works with schools to assist with resource management, food insecurity and oral health care, and they link people to needed health services. One example of its work was last week when it gave out 140 meals in three days to Waldo County children.

One hundred percent of the profits from the Silent Auction will go to the nursing association. The artist’s chair creations will be on display at Local Color Gallery from Thursday, July 30, through Saturday, Aug. 15. The final bidding day—Aug. 15—will include an outdoor display of the chairs, as well as safely-spaced clipboards for making bids. Stop by the gallery to view the chairs and consider your bids.

Local Color Gallery is located at 135 High St. and open Thursdays through Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.
