The Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair is holding an art auction, offering original works of art created by members of the congregation.

The works are viewable at A counter on the page this week erroneously said the auction would end Wednesday, but it’s running until at Dec. 1 (after an extension from earlier dates).

Most proceeds will go to the congregation’s general funds. The pieces are currently displayed in UUCM’s Unity Gallery, where they can be seen in person. Winners will be contacted by email or telephone, and payments and deliveries of the art arranged at that time.

The congregation said on its site it’s also taking the opportunity to test out new software in anticipation of its annual auction, expected to next be held in the spring.
