**For Immediate Release**
Student Art Auction To Fund Scholarships
-released by OPSU Campus Communications 02-10-06

Goodwell, OK - The 6th annual Paul Farrell Memorial Art Auction is Saturday, Feb. 18 at the Pickle Creek Center. The auction is a formal event held to help Oklahoma Panhandle State University art students acquire the tools and skills necessary to market their art in a professional setting, similar to what they would experience in the “real” world. Even though students are required to dress formally, attendees are encouraged to dress as they wish.

Viewing of the art will begin at 6:00 p.m. The banquet begins at 7:00 p.m., with the auction following the meal. Kim’s Ribs is catering a pork loin dinner for the event.

Proceeds from the auction benefit the Paul Farrell scholarship fund and the Endangered Student scholarship fund. In addition, students participating in the auction receive a portion of the proceeds from the pieces they sell in the form of a scholarship. Some of the proceeds also fund equipment for the OPSU Art Department. “Last year, students raised $17,000,” said OPSU art instructor Bryon Test. “This year’s goal is $20,000, and we hope to exceed it.”

Tickets are $50 per couple and $30 per individual and are available from any Images Art Club member, the Wild Horse Gallery or The Gallery in Guymon.

Auction items will include ceramics, paintings, pencil drawings and art from many other mediums. 45 different student pieces will be up for bid. Plan to attend the auction and support OPSU’s student artisans.
