Ellsworth’s Silent Auction 

A silent auction in Ellsworth this weekend will help raise money for a world class piece of art.

7 artists from around the world are taking part in a symposium in Winter Harbor over the summer.

The sculptures they create will go to communities in Hancock and Washington counties.

A group is trying to raise $5,000 dollars to place one of them in Ellsworth.

Auction items range from paintings and furniture to handbags and even a diamond.

Tickets are $10.

The auction is from 5:30-8:00 P.M. Saturday at the Maine Grind in Ellsworth.
