Silent Auction of exhibit items to benefit View

View’s current exhibition, The Wild Life, features a mix of conventional fine art, taxidermy and traditional handmade weapons.

Charles Sinclair, an artist whose handcrafted knives, bows and arrows are among the items on display, has offered four of the knives to be used in a silent auction.

The knives are currently on display in the glass case in View’s lobby and includes a large puma femur knife with story sheath with a value of $455, a smaller puma humerus scalper/Bowie with story sheath valued at $455, a mesquite-handled large searles Bowie with sheath value at $305, or a pronghorn-handled knife with sheath valued at $295.

At the close of the exhibit on April 28, the person with the highest bid will win their choice of unsold knives.

Fifty percent of the proceeds of the silent auction will benefit View exhibits.

Admission to The Wild Life exhibition is $10/$5 members. Children ages 12 and under are admitted free. More information about View is available by calling (315) 369-6411, or at
