Several Summerland artists have made old newel post caps headed for the trash into creative artwork.

The Renewal Post exhibit was organized as one of the Summerland Community Arts Council’s Earth Week events.

Artists were given a round post end and told to use it as a starting point for creative artwork.

The entries include some faces, a peach and an octopus among others.

The posts, on display at the former Indulgences building, 10122 Main St., are available through a silent auction. Bids start at $35.

Bids can be placed at the Summerland Community Arts Centre, 9533 Main St., Monday to Friday from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Bidding closes on May 18 at 4 p.m.
