Keweenaw Krayons seeks crayon art for live auction

MOHAWK -- Keweenaw Krayons will host a live auction to raise money for programs like Art On Wheels and Dan Schmitt Gift of Music classes. On the auction block: crayon art created by you, artists of the Copper Country. Keweenaw Krayons is putting out a call for any type of art made with the humble crayon. Whether you draw stick figures or still life, they want to see what you can do.

They're also accepting artwork made with melted crayons. For links to great ideas, visit the Keweenaw Krayons Web site.

The auction will take place at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Vertin Galery in Calumet. If you would like to submit work, call Elise Matz, Keweenaw Krayons executive director, at 934-3824 and she will pick it up. Those who submit work will receive two complimentary tickets to the auction, which will also include live music and refreshments.

"Barbara Rose of the Keweenaw Community Foundation will be our fabulous auctioneer," Matz says.

Those who would like to attend the auction can purchase tickets from the Vertin Gallery and at Keweenaw Archive, located in the Jutila Center in Hancock.

Keweenaw Krayons thanks you for your support!
