The Lake Tahoe Community College Foundation and Rotary Club of South Lake Tahoe are hosting the third annual “Off the Wall” art auction at LTCC. Participants can enjoy artworks created by locally and regionally known artists, bid on their favorites, and support local education and charitable organizations at the same time.
The artwork up for auction is being donated by a number of local artists, including LTCC Art Department Chairwoman Phyllis Shafer, and other Art Department faculty members.
Participants can first view the art at an auction kickoff party from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, March 24 in the Haldan Gallery and Board/Aspen rooms, inside the library building on the LTCC campus. The event is free. Auction items can also be viewed from March 25-28 in the Haldan. Gallery hours will be from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. each day.
The “Off the Wall” Auction Night is at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 29 in the Haldan and Board/Aspen rooms. A silent auction will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m., with a live auction at 7:30 p.m. There is a $10 charge at the door to attend and bid at the auction, which includes one drink coupon and lots of hearty appetizers.
All of the proceeds from ticket and art sales will be split between the LTCC Foundation and the Rotary Club of South Lake Tahoe.
