    Portsmouth Christian Academy (PCA) is pleased to announce that PCA Senior Kathryn Komerska is the grand prize winner of PCA’s 7th Annual Auction Art Contest. Her piece "Pleasant Afternoon" is a whimsical depiction, in warm and acrylic tones, of a summer BBQ, portraying the generosity, love, and enjoyment of a family feast.
    An Artists’ Reception, open to the public, will be held on March 15, 2019 at 3:30pm in the PCA gym lobby, to honor all of the winners of the juried art contest associated with PCA’s 24th Annual Auction. With 85 submissions, the Art Contest represents a significant element of PCA’s 24th Annual Auction. The Artists’ Reception represents the kick-off for bidding on all art, and will continue throughout the Live Auction the following day, March 16 with doors open at 8:00am. Art and other items up for bid can be previewed online at https://501auctions.com/pca2019. All Auction activities are open to the public.
    The theme of this year’s Auction – The Bountiful Table: Sowing, Harvesting, Feasting – represents a literal celebration of farm to table as well as the abundance of spirit within the PCA community. Through the artwork and pottery in our gallery, we symbolically feast upon the goodness of the harvest and the fruit of the Earth. All art is available for bidding alongside garden and antique furniture sets; themed class gifts that feature gardening, cooking, and grilling; Red Sox game tickets; an Orlando get-away; and much much more.
