Art enthusiasts and Ray Frederick fans will be thrilled to hear that Marshalltown Community College will be hosting a silent auction to officially open the new Ray Frederick Gallery on the MCC campus. The event will be held over two days with a viewing on Friday, June 10th and viewing and bidding on Saturday, June 11th.

The public art auction viewing will be held on Friday, June 10 from 7 to 9 pm. Doors will open promptly at 7 pm. The starting bids for each painting will be on display at this time as well. The silent auction will take place on Saturday, June 11, 10 am to 2 pm. Auction cards will be given to those planning to bid to keep track and auction numbers will be used on the bid sheets so they will be anonymous.

Visitors and community members will want to note that MCC will be hosting a Mass Casualty Simulation with local law enforcement and emergency services during the afternoon of June 10th.  All activity related to the simulation will be completed by the start of the Friday evening viewing.

Cash or checks will be accepted, and you must be present at the end of the auction to pick up your artwork. Frederick’s daughter Denise and son Bruce Frederick will be attending the events with several more of Frederick’s family. Photos, cards and reproductions will be available both days to purchase.

Visitors should park in the east lot and enter the campus building through the Faust Student Union entrance (door #3) If you have questions about the silent auction email Tim Castle at or Denise Barr at
