More than 50 original hanging art pieces will be up for bids at Artament, Cinema Center’s 9th annual art auction on Saturday, December 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Cinema Center, 437 E. Berry St. Once again, local artists were asked to create a unique work of art that hangs from a string and is no larger than 8” x 8” x 8”. Pieces may follow a holiday theme or function as a year-round art object, making them ideal for art collectors as well as seasonal gift-givers. This year’s exhibition includes works by some of Fort Wayne finest artists, including Eric Tarr, Rebecca Stockert, Carey Shafer, Diane Groenert, Paul Demaree, Lisa Vetter, Paul Siefert, Suzanne Galazka, Jerrod Tobias, Kristy Jo Beber, David Krouse, and many more.

New this year, Artament tickets may be purchased online at, and to encourage advance sales, Cinema Center has lowered the ticket price by $5. Cost for the evening is $20 in advance ($25 at the door) and includes admission to the party/silent auction, a lavish appetizer buffet and cash bar by JK O’Donnell’s, and a film at 9 p.m. — “Wuthering Heights” (Director Andrea Arnold’s fresh and daring interracial adaptation of the epic love story by Emily Brontë). The party will be held in Cinema Center’s new Spectator Lounge (formerly Artlink gallery). Tickets may also be purchased in advance by calling 260-426-3456, emailing, or visiting the Cinema Center box office during regular showtimes.
