...WGBY, Public Television for Western New England

Paradise City's Silent Art Auctions have raised almost $350,000 over the years to benefit community causes and non-profits, including Hospice, Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society, the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, the Breast Form Fund and WGBY Public Television. The beneficiary organization receives 100% of the donated funds.

Paradise City and WGBY-TV pair up once again to present an exciting silent art auction of works donated by exhibitors at Paradise City Northampton this October. WGBY provides children with the tools to learn and grow, adults with entertainment like Downton Abbey and Masterpiece Mystery, and fascinating scientific, political and cultural programming for all.

Bid high and bid often at the Silent Auction tables in the Arena Building! Hundreds of beautiful and valuable pieces have been generously donated by Paradise City artists. Check out the tables each day, and be sure to visit the booths of the artist donors.

Jewelry, furniture, painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass, wearable art, quilts, and more will be presented all weekend for your bidding pleasure, with different items displayed every day on the auction tables.

Volunteers will help you place your bids. The tables will close to bidding at exactly 4pm on Saturday and Sunday, and 3pm on Monday.

All proceeds from this event help WGBY to continue providing quality educational programs and services throughout western New England.

Don't miss the 'Craft in America' sneak preview
to be aired at the WGBY tables all weekend long!

Craft in America, the Emmy-nominated and Peabody-Award-wnning series dedicated to exploring craft in our nation, begins Season Five with 'Forge', premiering on PBS stations nationwide primetime at 10PM on Friday, October 25. Craft in America: Forge profiles exceptional artists working in what could be the only tangible example of 'alchemy' we have - the forging of metal magically transformed by fire.

A sneak preview of the first episode of Season 5 will be shown at the Paradise City Arts Festival in Northampton, in conjunction with American Craft Week and WGBY Public Television for Western New England. Craft in America Montage
