The Victor Farmington Library, 15 W. Main St., Victor, will host its third annual silent auction starting April 1, with winners announced on May 1.
This year’s auction will feature a variety of art beyond the usual paintings and photographs typically seen at this event, such as jewelry, wooden objects and pottery.
“We really wanted to branch out this year and offer a wider selection of art for people to bid on,” said Tim Niver, library director. “Everyone has different tastes and we want the auction to be reflective of that.”
Proceeds will go toward the summer reading program, especially the children’s events and activities. Participants can stop by the library throughout April to view the art and place their bids.
The auction will end with a reception from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on May 1, which will be attended by some of the artists. The Friends of the Victor Farmington Library will cater the event with snacks and drinks.
“The reception is the best part of the auction,” Niver said. “There are quite a few people socializing, eating and drinking, and talking with the artists. The bidding can even get quite competitive, as many people grow fond of a particular piece they are hoping to win, and it makes for a really fun evening.”
