Donors sought for charity Art & Antiques Bazaar

By Staff | Jul 31, 2015

Shepherdstown’s Bridge Gallery will hold a Charity Art and Antiques Bazaar to benefit the Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) from Aug. 14 – 23.

The bazaar will feature donated works of art, collectibles and antiques. All profits will go to PVAS.

PVAS is asking its members to donate items for the bazaar, the Bridge Gallery is donating items of its own and members of the community are invited to donate, too. Donated items should have artistic, collectible or antique value or be unique, fun conversation pieces. Examples include paintings, prints, photographs, sculptures, ceramics, antiques, jewelry, fabric, embroidery, instruments and art books. Please, no clothing, dishes, kitchenware or children’s toys or games unless these are antique or uniquely valuable.

Donated items may be dropped off at the gallery on Tuesday, Aug. 11 and Wednesday, Aug. 12 between 1 and 5 p.m. or by appointment made with Mike Sullivan of PVAS (304-876-1343). Sullivan can also answer questions about the appropriateness of donations, drop off logistics or pricing and arrange for items to be picked up if such arrangements are needed.

The Bridge Gallery is located just to the south of Shepherdstown at 8566 Shepherdstown Pike (Route 230). Its normal hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, 12-6 p.m. on Saturday, and 12-3 p.m. on Sunday. Its website is at www.bridgegalleryandframing.com.
