Each spring the Vernonia Hands On Art Center, the local non-profit arts and culture support group, presents their annual Jr. Salmon Auction.
A fundraiser for the Vernonia Schools arts programs, the auction features the amazing salmon creations of Vernonia art students. The students are supplied with blank pressboard salmon on which to craft their own unique visions. In addition to salmon, students have worked their magic on small furniture items that are also to be included in the auction.
The event is held at the Vernonia Schools on Missouri Avenue. Salmon are auctioned off with a minimum starting bid of $10.00. Profits go to support Vernonia School Arts and Hands On Art programs.
