WINCHESTER — Local artist Carrie Keller (O’Neill) is organizing a Facebook Art Auction to take place throughout April, with proceeds going to the Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation. Carrie lives in Winchester and is a prolific painter. She also teaches painting classes through her business, Paintings to Order. With the COVID-19 pandemic, all art shows have been cancelled and teaching has been limited. As a result, Carrie has multiple paintings available.
“I am grateful to have Winchester District Memorial Hospital in our community and I want to help,” she explained. “This is a great opportunity and I hope it will be fun too.”
Each day in April, a new painting will be posted, and viewers can begin bidding. Bidding will close each night at midnight. The next morning, Carrie will announce the winner and post a new painting.
“This is a fun month-long event and we are grateful that Carrie is sharing her talents with all of us,” adds Cindy Ault Peters, Manager of Direct Mail & Events. “There’s a lot of anticipation because you won’t know what’s coming next!”
Most paintings are 11″x14″ in size and are unframed.
