Artwork by Marie Miles offered at Silent Auction – June 25 – Pittsfield, IL

artLongtime Pittsfield resident Marie Miles has created many iconic paintings of Pike County buildings and landscapes over the years. Art lovers will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire one of Miles’ works Wednesday, June 25 when a silent auction will offer her painting and prints for sale. The event will be held at the County Seat room adjacent to Courtyard Café in Pittsfield. Because Miles was very much involved throughout her lifetime with creating beautiful sets for Pike County theater productions under the direction of Jon Robb, all of the proceeds from the art auction will be donated to the Pittsfield High School Drama Club. There are around 20 original paintings and many prints as well that will be auctioned, all in excellent condition. The original paintings of the Pike County Courthouse, Old East School, and the Pike County Jail, which Miles was commissioned to paint for Farmers State Bank in Pittsfield, will all be included in the auction. The paintings will be hanging in Courtyard Café beginning on Thursday, June 19, and will be available for viewing during the restaurant’s business hours. The silent auction will be conducted on the following Wednesday, June 25, from 6-8 p.m. At 8 o’clock, the winners of the bidding will be announced. Anyone with questions concerning the auction may contact Spencer Boren at 217-248-4975.
