Columbus Arts Council Hosts Antiques Exhibit and Silent Auction


COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — If you’re in Columbus this week, you can indulge in art and fine wine.

Tonight, the Columbus Arts Council is hosting an antique fair at the corner of Fifth and Main Street.

A silent auction will be held with proceeds going to the Tennessee Williams House.

Local and foreign artists will present their pieces for sale. Tonight’s show, starting at 5:30 p.m., will pay homage to MUW grad, longtime entertainer, and Columbus native Elaine Goodman.

“She’s been doing this for a while. I believe she is 83 years old and has exhibited several times at festivals and galleries all over the south. It’s really cool to have her here because I think it’s a good example of what Columbus stands for and she said something really strong to us is that she keeps her prices low because ‘she thinks everyone deserves art. It doesn’t matter where you are. Your life choices. Your economic situation,” said Salem Gibson of the Columbus Arts Council.

Goodman will be present tonight.

Tonight’s show ends at 7:30 p.m.

Tomorrow’s show is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday’s show is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
