The renovated Hammondsport Opera House will be the site for an auction to benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times  from 2 to 5 p.m. June 4. Sponsored by The Willows Bed & Breakfast, the auction will feature 15 pieces, including paintings by the esteemed artist Rafael Feliciano.

A native of Puerto Rico, Feliciano imbues his works with a vibrant light that intensifies the color of the quasi-realist landscapes he favors. His paintings of Keuka Lake will be especially featured.

Popular character actor James Tolkan, from Top Gun (Stinger) and the Back to the Future films (Principal Strickland) will be the celebrity guest.

The Willows B&B on Keuka Lake is owned and operated by Jim and Kathy Yonge, and is located at 6893 East Bluff Drive, Penn Yan.

Actor James Tolkan will be attending the auction to benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times on June 4.
