The Guild Blog / Start the Bidding it's LPB Art Auction Time

The Louisiana Crafts Guild, through the Sans Souci Fine Crafts Gallery, has partnered with Louisiana Public Broadcasting again this year in their annual fund-raiser the LPB Art & Travel Auction. This will be the third year that our artists have generously contributed their time, talent, and artistic creations to help fund this worthy cause. In 2012, we had 12 artists contribute; in 2013 there were 15; and this year we have 18 beautiful works of art donated. The artists and mediums this year are a fine representation of the talent and creativity of our membership. With donations from Sherryl Lutz, Terri Kennedy, Annie Hendrix, Pat Juneau, Hank Schlau, Carol Thibodeaux, Sher Chappell, Ginger Kelly, Suzanne Juneau, Jo Minvielle, Jerilyn LaVergne, Greg Little, Phoebe Tarver, Robin Daning, Chris DesJardins, Kathleen Foto, Kathleen Gumich, and Arthur McViccar – LCG and the Sans Souci will again be recognized as one of the leading art organizations of the state.

The LPB Preview Party "Art Rocks” is to be held at the LPB studios on Perkins Road on Friday, September 19th from 5:30-8:30 pm, so mark your calendars. It’s always a fun event – a great pre-view party which is free and open to the public. LPB always does a great job of displaying the art from galleries and artists from all over the state, and the LCG/Sans Souci section is always crowded with patrons who appreciate the creations offered by our members. There will be a catalogue available at the door with beautiful images of the art available for bidding; and the auction will begin on-line at midnight. Bidding on-line will continue until the BIG EVENT – the LIve Auction broadcast on all LPB stations around the state, beginning at 7pm on Thursday, October 23.

It always warms my heart when I think of how generous our artists are. We are always asked to donate many times during the year, and the Louisiana Crafts Guild is an organization that I am proud to be a part of. We are a generous, loving, and creative group of people – always willing to step up and help support the many foundations and organizations who rely on organizations like ours for support.
