State of the Arts: Art Council Auction, Operatic Delights

This is your last chance to pick up some Vermont-made artwork in the Vermont Art Council’s online auction to benefit the Vermont Food Bank. More than 70 artists and organizations have chipped in; poet Verandah Porche contributed the tongue-in-cheek line, “I’m glad that starving artists can help feed the people.” Preview the auction items at The auction closes at 5 p.m. on Thursday, December 4 . . . Also on Thursday, at 3:30 p.m., the University of Vermont Music and Humanities Series launches with “An Afternoon of Operatic Delights,” featuring soprano Shyla Nelson, tenor John Tiranno and organist Paul Orgel. The program will include excerpts from Mozart’s Magic Flute, Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love and Puccini’s La Bohème. Holiday bonus: The concert is free! Info, 656-1107.
