Art auction features DeBolt, Lardinois
During the art show, the Waupaca Community Arts Center will hold a silent auction of art by David DeBolt and Robert Lardinois.
After the show, the items will be on view at the WCAC gallery at 200 N. Main Street, and bidding will continue through July 18.
Proceeds from the auction will go to the Waupaca Fine Arts Festival and the Waupaca Community Arts Center.
This auction is made possible by a donation from Kristie DeBolt of David’s final paintings that remain for sale.
Robert Lardinois is also donating a selection of his own paintings and ceramics. This work had been for sale through DeBolt’s gallery.
The gallery, Originals etc., was a mainstay on Main Street for nearly 15 years, and closed after DeBolt died two years ago.
