Electric City Creative Presents: NEW YEAR, NEW ART Silent Auction Art Party

Think you can't afford to buy art? Are your walls looking a bit uninteresting? Do you like discovering new things? SAY, we can help you with that!

Electric City Creative is hosting another art party, this time a silent auction featuring work by Great Falls artists. Minimum bids are starting very low, so everyone has a chance to go home with something great.

We'll have work available from:

- Tyson Habein
- Corey Fisher
- Julia Becker
- David Mariani Jr.
- Ernesto Velazquez

And who knows what sort of extra goodies we'll have going on. Turn up and find out.

Bidding starts at 6pm and we'll have drink specials all night. Under 21? That's all right, too. Come have a soda and put in a bid. No cover.

Shortly before 9pm, we'll announce the high bidders for each work of art, and then the night transitions into Machinery Row's regular Open Mic Night, which always promises a good time.

If you haven't been to Open Mic before, now is the time to check it out. Regular performers include Joe Ryan, Dana Jo Forseth, Ryan Johnson, Jonny Ravenscroft and more. It's a fantastic night of music.

During Open Mic, we'll do a live auction of a collaborative piece of art from the artists, featuring an unusual canvas you'll just have to see...

RSVP on Facebook here.

You know you want to come. Tell your friends, come see some spectacular work, and enjoy the tunes. See you there.
