Goodwell, Okla. - The 7th Annual Paul Farrell Memorial Scholarship Art Auction is planned for this Saturday, March 3 in the Pickle Creek Event Center in Guymon. The social hour begins at 6 p.m. followed by a meal at 7 with bidding set to begin at 8. Sponsored by the Oklahoma Panhandle State University Art Department and Images Art Club, the auction features fine art created by OPSU students and professional artists.
Proceeds from the auction benefit the Paul Farrell scholarship fund. In addition, students who sell pieces receive a portion of the proceeds their items bring in the form of a scholarship. The event also helps OPSU art students learn the skills necessary to market their art in a professional setting, and even though students are required to dress formally, patrons are encouraged to dress as they wish.
Tickets are available at Wild Horse Gallery and through Images Art Club members.
