Fancy furniture raising funds: Local artists deck out Adirondack chairs to support downtown events in Hawley

Functional pieces of art are now up for auction in part of Wayne County as part of an event to help one community thrive.

HAWLEY, Pa. — A summertime event is underway in part of Wayne County. 

It's called "Pick Your Seat." It ties into an Adirondack chair online auction to benefit the downtown Hawley Partnership.

The online auction is underway now through 2 p.m. this Saturday, August 28, 2021, on this Facebook post below. You can also access it here.

Artist details

The event involves 16 artists who have painted 16 different Adirondack chairs. Organizers did this as a way to create a functional piece of art.

Proceeds from the chair auction go to the Downtown Hawley Partnership for all community events such as Hawley Hoedown, Winterfest, and other projects that are in the works!

Ryan Leckey also brought us an installment of That's So 570. Tuesday's segment focused on fun furniture viewers found and revamped.
