‘Evening for the Arts’ to help NU Fine Arts Department

The community has an opportunity to support the Fine Arts Department of Nevada Union High School by attending a silent auction of art and dinner at the Miners Foundry Cultural Center.

Included in the exhibit is photography, painting, drawing, and ceramics created in class, as well as art that has been produced by alumni, faculty and professional artists. All works are for sale in the silent auction that culminates before dinner begins.

The community is invited to donate items for the auction and the raffle.

Nevada City Winery is also helping out by providing a wine-tasting reception at their tasting room right next to the Foundry. According to CEO Wyn Spiller, “Fifty percent of any purchases of wine (that evening) will be donated. It’s all going into the same big pot.”

Organizers say that all proceeds will purchase much needed instructional materials and supplies for the entire Fine Arts Department. “We believe that the arts are a vital component of K-12 instruction,” says teacher David Arnold, “and ask for the community’s support.”
