Whatever the final bid is above the asking price goes to support 4-H projects in Georgia.” Paintings, pottery, jewelry, hand-woven rugs and other artworks are on view at www.32auctions.com/2014ART. This online auction will run through Nov. 20.These online, pre-show artists as well as many others working in paint, clay, glass, metal, fiber and other media will converge on Rock Eagle 4-H Center near Eatonton, Georgia, Nov. 22-23 for the sixth annual Art at the Rock.
