Fabrication Auction

We are excited to announce the upcoming Fabrication Auction, to be held Friday, October 16th at 7:00 PM at the Wilkes Art Gallery.

Dozens of local artists have selected various items from the ReStore that are being used to create works of art that will be sold by silent auction with all proceeds benefitting Wilkes Habitat for Humanity and Wilkes Art Gallery educational programs. The artwork will first be displayed at the free viewing party Friday, September 25th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, and will be on display during the gallery’s normal operating hours up until the night of the Fabrication Auction.

This is a wonderful opportunity to support the work of Habitat for Humanity while enjoying an evening of local artwork. Hors d’oeuvres & refreshments will be served. Tickets to the event are $25.00 a piece, and can be purchased at the Wilkes Habitat ReStore and the Wilkes Art Gallery.

To view a collection of images of the artists and the items they have selected, please visit our Photo Gallery.

Things have been busy over the last several weeks at the Habitat ReStore. We had our first plant sale, celebrated one year of business, and added an intern.

Thanks to Donna Latham at Midtown Garden Market we had our first plant sale. Dona generously donated her end of season plants as she operates seasonally. You can see from the picture we were alive with plants thanks to a few green thumbs and hard work.

We served up free hot dogs as part of our 1st year birthday party. We served over 100 dogs to customers on the anniversary of our grand opening Saturday August 15th. Thanks to Berry, Irene, and Annie for making it so much fun.

And last but not least we have added an impressive co-op student from Wilkes Community College. Ray Townsell comes to join our ranks for his final semester in the business program. I can’t wait to see what his skills and experience will add.
