Scott looks to keep the community interested and engaged in Artlink's ongoing activities.

Artlink's inaugural Art Auction begins this Thursday, October 14th with a celebratory "Bash," a ticketed event that includes a preview of the work and "buy now" options.

Artlink exists to support artists through exhibition, education and community engagement and the opening Bash will kick-off a three day online bidding period, running from Friday, October 15th through midnight on Sunday, October 17th.

Being surrounded by artists inspires Mensch to work harder at her own creative endeavors.

The exhibition, with more than seventy pieces of original art on display, represents longtime members, including former director, Betty Fishman, and young, emerging local artists alike.

WBOI's Julia Meek sat down with Lynette Scott and Ellen Mensch, Artlink's Executive Director and Exhibition Coordinator, respectively, to learn the significance of the endeavor,what it will look like and how the organization continues to engage the community in artcentric conversation.
