The Friends will also be hosting a celebratory auction on the afternoon of Sunday, November 25th. It has been a number of years since The Friends last held an auction, and they have always been quite popular.
On the block will be fine art and craft, collectible antiques, and many other special items. Viewing for the auction will begin at 1 pm.
The Friends of Eptek Centre will be serving refreshments. This special auction commemorates Eptek Art & Culture Centre’s 40 years of exhibitions and programming. Over the years, the centre has brought in national and international exhibitions as well as providing an opportunity for local artists and craftspeople, both professional and amateur, to display their creations. As one of the seven Prince Edward Island Museum and Heritage Foundation (PEIMHF) sites, Eptek Centre also displays treasured artifacts from the PEIMHF’s permanent collections.
The on-site boutique is stocked with Prince Edward Island made crafts and visual art including work by artists Lise Genova, Lucie Bellemare, P. John Burden, Sandi Komst, Joan Savage, Maurice Bernard, Doreen Huestis and more.
