Randolph County Arts Bank held its 21st annual auction Saturday evening at the Beverly Fire Hall in support of funding art teachers in elementary schools.
All of the art that was auctioned was donated by local artists.
There were also bucket raffles, silent auction, and a grand auction.
Organizers said it’s the generosity of the local community that has kept the Randolph Arts Bank programs alive.
“The importance of art for a young person is that it develops the whole brain, and it helps to support thinking, critical skills, and how to stretch the mind,” said Scottie Wiest, member of the Randolph County Arts Bank.
Members of the Arts Bank in Randolph County say the arts help kids expands their way of thinking.
