The Atlantic Salmon Museum's annual Hall of Fame dinner and fundraiser is September 22, 2018, starting around 4:30pm at the Doaktown, New Brunswick, Curling Club. I'm happy to report that they've invited me back as the evening's auctioneer; it's always a great crowd and a lot of fun doing the auction.
As a member of the Museum's board of directors, I try to do my part when it comes to raising those all-important operating funds. To that end, I put together three shadow boxes; one for the live auction and two for the silent auction.
The silent auction framings both feature Atlantic salmon and salmon flies. The first contains a limited edition print by Joe Tomelleri of a Miramichi salmon that he personally landed and five feather wing flies tied by yours truly. Hunter green and burgundy acid-free double matting in a cherry frame from my shop:
The second silent auction framing includes an open edition giclee print of an Atlantic salmon, and five of my hair and feather wing flies. Acid free navy blue/burgundy double matting in a cherry frame, again from my shop.
The live auction framing is number 6/10 of my "Wheatley and Wets" framing. It features a photo of my old Wheatley box, filled with the wet flies I'm most partial to, and includes one each of the eleven flies in the photo. Hunter green/burgundy acid-free double matting in a cherry frame from my shop.
IMPORTANTLY - If one of these shadow box framings catches your eye, and you'd like to bid on it but can't make the dinner, you can place a bid with Karen or Daphne at the Museum at 506-365-7787. They are available Monday-Saturday 9 to 5, and Sunday noon 'til 5. You will need to give them a credit card number which will only be used if you are the winning bidder! You will be charged for shipping in addition to your bid.
The Atlantic Salmon Museum is a treasure in the heart of New Brunswick...I hope you'll support it, too!
