8x8 Anonymous Show and Auction
to benefit Student Scholarship
August 11 - 19

  
The Anonymous Art Show is a fundraiser and group exhibition that enables the community and our members to support our student scholarship fund and our outreach and educational efforts. Each piece of art measure 8 inches square and youwill find various media represented among the works. Each of the works have been donated to support the case by members of the Milton Arts Guild. 

The show begins on August 11 with an opening reception from 5 - 7 at the Studios on Walnut on Walnut Street in Milton.  This is where the bidding will start on the more than 80 paintings that have been donated by our members. Silent bidding will start at $25. The auction will conclude on August 19th with the final bidding to take place from 
2pm until 4pm. In the final minutes before the end of the auction, works that have not had any bids will have starting bids lowered to $15.

This is a great opportunity to get a few pieces of local art and support our Student Scholarship program at the same time. 

So come support local students and get a bargain at the same time. 
  
 

  

Watercolor with Gerilyn Gaskill
September's Artful Touch.

Geri with be guiding student through creation of a winter scene. This class features demonstration plus a paint along. Some watercolor experience will be of help, but beginners are welcome.

"We will be exploring the ebb and flow of watercolors and their unique way of blending," Geri explains.


Students may bring their own brushes, palettes, and paper, but supplies for this class will be provided.

Gerilyn Gaskill has a passion for capturing the beauty of the Delaware coastline and Delmarva landscapes in watercolor, oil and acrylics. Her interest in art started young in kindergarten and was helped along by her great-grandfather artist August Seiler, who also painted coastal imagery.
 
Gerilyn was born and resided in Wilmington, spent some of her youth in Lewes, and now splits the difference residing closer to the middle of the state in Georgetown, DE.   Art consumes her every waking moment.
 
When she’s not painting, she is teaching others to paint. Gaskill volunteers a great deal of her time educating youth in the arts.
