Original works by local artists are just some of the silent auction items that will be offered Sunday during "The Night Sings," Opera CdA's annual gala set to take place Sunday from 5-9 p.m. at The Coeur d'Alene Resort.

Original work by some of the best known regional artists will be among more than $20,000 worth of treasures to be auctioned Sunday at Opera Coeur d'Alene's annual gala taking place from 5-9 p.m. at The Coeur d'Alene Resort.

"The Night Sings" gala features performance by renowned opera singers Dawn Marie Wolski, Heather and Derrick Parker along with violinist Mateusz Wolski, accompanied by Greg Pressly on the piano. Verne Windham, of Spokane Public Radio’s will emcee.

The evening includes a unique menu of cuisine, designed around the themes of Bizet’s “Carmen” by Resort Executive Chef, Rod Jessick.

One of the silent auction offerings is the chance to have a New York Metropolitan Opera star come to your home to prepare a gourmet dinner for six, then sing for your guests along with Opera CdA’s general director.

Among the artwork is a signed artist’s proof, limited edition, of a grizzly bear titled "Noisy Neighbor" by Stephen Lyman. A girl plays the violin among colorful flowers in an oil by Robert Krogle. Other original oils include "Winter's Color" on linen, by Kyle Paliotto;  a framed oil on canvas with two girls at the piano, titled "Taking Turns" by Genie Higbee; and a still life, oil on board, by Kathy Gale. Two framed and signed works by Terry Lee include "Tuscan Farm House" and a brightly colored rooster. In case there is more than one rooster lover, there will also be a piece featuring one of Steven Shortridge’s popular roosters.

Other silent auction offers include boat cruises, gourmet culinary treats, wine, champagne and overnight stays at area hotels and inns.

Tickets are $100 and are expected to sell out, so early purchases are recommended.
