Painting society chapter to host art auction

Thursday, October 25, 2018 by STEPHANIE RAPHUN in Local News

The Lehigh Valley Chapter of the Society of Decorative Painters is hosting its 27th annual art auction Nov. 4 in the Whitehall High School cafeteria, 2940 MacArthur Road.

There will be a preview time starting at 1:30 p.m. The bidding begins at 2 p.m.

For the past several years, the auctions were held at Sheckler Elementary School, Catasauqua, but the group changed venues this year to generate even more interest.

Some of the profits earned from the auction will go toward an art scholarship for a Whitehall High School senior.
