Lincoln Art Institute was turned into a combination art gallery and
auction house at the latest show opening Thursday evening.
While the walls were hung with the imaginative art and sculpture
created by the members of Logan County Arts, many of the items on
display were set aside for a silent auction.
The silent auction included many holiday items that would make
terrific gifts and center pieces of a traditional family dinner.
The proceeds of the silent auction will go toward supporting the
continuing work of Logan County Arts and the Lincoln Art Institute.
The usually low key art show shifted gears up this time and elicited
some spirited bidding for unique items.
When asked why community support of the Lincoln art scene is so
important, Moses Pinkerton did not hesitate to respond “Art shapes

Pinkerton had the distinction of creating the silent auction item
that created the most bidding and the highest final price. While Sheralyn Bolton
did her terrific impression of a “Price is Right” hostess highlighting auction
items, auctioneer Mitch Douglas encouraged bidders to compete against one
another for one-of-a-kind art.
Thursday evening’s event marks the end of the 2017 art season at the Lincoln Art
Institute. The next show will be in February 2018. The theme will be "Time."
Thursday does not mark the end of the current exhibit. Contact Moses Pinkerton
