Grace Episcopal Church Hosts “A Celebration of the Hands”

Friday, April 25, 2014

A spring evening, a glass of wine, music, objects d’art… no, it’s not a reception in Paris, but “A Celebration of the Hands,” a silent auction on Saturday, May 10 at Grace Episcopal Church. Chattanooga is well renowned for its vibrant arts community, and Grace has gathered some of the finest local artists together to share their work and insights with Chattanooga art lovers.

Sponsored by GraceCreates, a band of the church’s ardent art-supporters, the auction promises to be a unique opportunity for the community to get better acquainted with local artists in an intimate setting.

“This is a great chance for Chattanoogans to get together and revel in the abundant talent we have in our community and to engage with these gifted artists,” said Grace’s rector, Rev. Susan Butler. Auction goers will be able to visit with the artists and bid on their work while enjoying wine, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and the music of local singer Andrew Chauncey.

Items to be auctioned include paintings, sculpture, photography, pottery, fabric arts, and art lessons. Details about each piece will be available for preview at www.saygrace.net beginning May 5. The evening begins at 6 p.m. and runs through 9 p.m., with bidding ending at 8 p.m.  There is a $25 admission charge, which covers two glasses of wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres. Grace Episcopal Church is located at 20 Belvoir Ave.
