The auction will include six carved wood birds by master woodworker Harvey Sargisson; Mr. Sargisson taught woodworking at Groton School from 1944 to 1970, and was instrumental in gathering local support and funds to purchase the property on Knopps Pond now known as Sargisson Beach and owned by the town. The Sargisson ducks have become treasured acquisitions at other local auctions.
Dr. MacNeil was a serious collector and admirer of the work of author and poet May Sarton. There are 44 books of her work and two originally signed letters from May Sarton available for bid as a collection. Available for bid will also be a few pieces of Dr. MacNeil’s own work as well as art work and antique mirrors from her collection.
Doors will be open at 2:00 PM to browse and enjoy wine and cheese. The Auction will begin at 3:00 PM.
