Special evening to benefit NU’s Fine Arts Department

An annual tradition has rolled around again: “An Evening for the Arts,” put on by the Nevada Union High School’s Fine Art Department. Dinner and a silent auction take place Friday at Miners Foundry Cultural Center in Nevada City.

NU students are the chefs and the entertainment. Seating for dinner, called the Food Gallery, starts at 7 p.m. Purchase tickets for $15 at the door.

Prior to this culminating evening is the silent auction and art exhibition that takes place at the Foundry tonight and Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; admission is free. Photography, paintings, drawings and ceramics are offered for sale in a silent auction format.

Visual Arts Department Chair Constance Ammon praised the community for its continuing support of the school’s art program, saying “… with the anticipation of looming budget cuts for our schools this year, the proceeds will be greatly appreciated and will help provide funds for the materials and supplies required to continue our nationally recognized programs.”
