COS Men's Club and Sisterhood sponsor art auction
On Sunday evening, April 2, the Men’s Club and Sisterhood of Congregation Ohev Shalom will be sponsoring an art exhibition and auction featuring art in all media and price ranges. Approximately 160 pieces of art, memorabilia. and glass will be presented by Marlin Art of New York, which conducts art auctions for organizations all over the country. The artwork, which is one-half to one third below gallery prices, will be presented, explained, and auctioned in a professional manner that will be appreciated by both gallery collectors and art novices. The proceeds from the auction will benefit the Youth and Education Departments along with other areas of Congregation Ohev Shalom. Major credit cards are accepted for art purchases.
Mark Stone, chairman of the event, said “We are delighted to present such a distinguished collection of art, and we will have something for everyone’s taste and price range.” As an example, Mark cited the works of Leroy Neiman, Agam, Andrew Wyeth, and other noted artists. In fact, Stone said, “If there is a certain artist or specific piece or kind of art you would like to see represented, let us know as soon as you can and we will see if we can accommodate you.”
Linda Wallerstein, the president of the COS Sisterhood, said “We look forward to seeing lots of COS members in attendance and welcome the participation of members of other area synagogues and the general public.”
Admission to attend the event is $18. The price includes complimentary wine and cheese along with other refreshments. The preview will begin at 7 p.m. and the auction will begin promptly at 8 p.m. There will be a door prize for some lucky winner.
The auction will take place in the social hall at Congregation Ohev Shalom, which is located at 613 Concourse Parkway South, in Maitland. To make reservations, or if you have any specific requests or other questions, please call Congregation Ohev Shalom at 407-298-4650.
