The 24th Annual Benefit Auction for the River Gallery School is set at lovely Scott Farm in Dummerston on May 10. This spring evening will be filled with lively music, delicious appetizers from Terri Ziter of A Vermont Table, and beautiful items for bid. It's always a festive event when RGS supporters come out to celebrate the importance of art in our community.

Live auction offerings include trips and adventures, among them a week in Tuscany, a South African safari, and a weekend in Los Angeles. Local businesses and artists have filled both the silent and live auctions with a first-rate assortment of items, including passes to Yellow Barn, Mt. Snow, and Montshire Museum, and gift certificates to the best local restaurants and inns, including Peter Havens, Chesterfield Inn, and Three Stones. As always, the auction features unique and original art from a talented group of local painters, sculptors, and potters, including Walter Slowinski, Petria Mitchell, Mallory Lake, Tim Allen, and many more.

The Silent Auction begins at 5:00 p.m., and the excitement of the Live Auction follows at 7:00. Admission to this event is $25 and includes a paddle number, delicious appetizers, coffee, and dessert, as well as live music and a great time. Pre-buy tickets are available on the RGS website, and tickets will also be for sale at the door. All proceeds insure the lasting vitality of the River Gallery School. Please come out for a festive night of celebration, creativity, and community!

For more information about the event, including a full list of auction items for bid, visit online at or call the school at (802) 257-1577.
