Refreshments will be served. All works are for sale with no reserve, and all works will sell, said Dr. Brad Jessop, director of ECU’s School of Fine Arts.

Proceeds will help fund an arts scholarship that honors the Ada Trio: Bob Sieg, Bob Barker and DJ “Pete” Lafon. They were the art faculty in the 1960s and 1970s who exhibited under that name and were widely known.
