In brief: Mead’s ‘eye4art’ showcases local artists

Mead School District will have its eye on art during the fourth annual “eye4art” art show and auction, Feb. 21 from 2-6 p.m.

More than 30 professional local artists will be exhibited alongside work done by Mead School District students.

“Our silent auction will feature a Harold Balazs enamel and a piece from each showing artist,” show organizer Mark Barnes said. “Last year Balazs’ went for a song. Way under value. It more than paid for the admission.”

The event will include music from school ensembles and hors d’oeuvres. Proceeds will go to the Mead Education Foundation. Admission is $10, $25 for a family and free for children 12 and under.
