One of Stumptown Art Studio’s most popular events– the annual theme auction & fundraiser– takes place the evening of July 7 during First Thursday Gallery Nights. Fish Frenzy is this years’ theme with over 25 local artists donating one-of-a-kind fish themed art just for the event.
Then, for one night and one night only on July 7, the Fish Frenzy concludes by means of a silent auction. The opening reception accompanied by refreshments begins at 6 p.m. Bidding will continue throughout that evening and finish in a frenzy at 9:30 p.m.
