Very Special Christmas Trees!

The last few years Christmas Market has hosted a silent auction of decorated Christmas trees donated by groups/individuals. The proceeds go to Anton Art Center Programing.

This year we have eight trees, each one is individual and very special. You can choose from colorful, fun, elegant, bright, traditional, even patriotic! All are under 3' tall...perfect to add to your holiday decorations.
Bidding closes Sunday, December 15 at 4pm., with pick-up beginning Tuesday, December 17.

                                  Here they are all together in our "Silent Auction" display.

1) "Three Boys and a Tree" was created by the three grandsons of one of our volunteers. The tree is decorated with tiny ornaments, some hand-crafted. Very bright, and very special.

2) Donated by Mary Friedman, this tree is elegantly decorated in teal, silver, and white. Just beautiful!

3) This very classy tree has been donated by Nancy Henk. The tree is fashioned from  spiraling grapevines. It is decorated with greens, pinecones, red roses, berries, and grapes. Lovely!

4) Donated by George Murphy, this tree is all U.S.A.! Handsomely decorated with red, white and blue ribbons and ornaments...topped with American flags.

5) Created by our own Anne Lilla (Executive Director of Anton Art Center), this cute little tree is decorated with spools, tiny pin cushions, and colorful felted ornaments. (I happen to know that Anne just learned to felt in a class offered this fall right here at Anton Art Center). This tree is just adorable!

6) "Merry 'Green' Christmas" tree donated by St. Mary School. As you might guess, it is decorated with recycled items. Little snowmen made of Christmas tree bulbs, garlands of poptops, and "topped" off with a jaunty top hat and red mittens. Such fun!

7) Connie Sochacki is one our gifted artists here at Anton Art Center. Her coloful tree is made from brightly wrapped presents. It is topped by a woven bird nest containing a tiny Christmas tree and little shiny presents. This tree is a collector's item.

8) "Scenes of the Season" This very clever tree has been donated by MCrest. It is decorated with handmade picture frames each one filled with holiday pictures. Very sweet tree!

Now its time for you to come in and see these trees, and bid on your favorites. Remember: Bidding ends on Sunday, December 15 at 4pm.
While you are here, do a little more Christmas shopping at our wonderful Christmas Market 2013!
