Painted Violins Art Auction and Reception

Submitted By Lee Foster

The Fremont Symphony Orchestra will continue its 50th Season Celebration with the Painted Violins Art Auction and Reception. In honor of our Golden Anniversary, several outstanding local artists are turning violins into visual works of art. Their creations are being auctioned off during a silent auction, and prior to the exhibit at an online auction; all proceeds will support the Symphony. The exhibition will take place on Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18.

Many of the violins are already on display in various locations around Fremont including: the entry hall of the Fremont Main Library, at the Fremont Art Association Gallery in Niles, at Pan Pacific Bank in Warm Springs and at the Fremont City Hall. The exhibits are rotated periodically. Online bidding available at our Bidding for Good auction site,

Each violin was created by an artist with ties to our community. The mediums are all different: paint, clay, stone, and many more; but the common element is the violin. Each of the priceless violins is unique and was created to represent each artistÕs personal connection to the community. Fremont Symphony Orchestra is honored to have these artists partner with us in our 50th season.
