an upcycled art auction
Oct 16th 5-8pm
Heck.house and Trash Talk ATL present re:Heck.
Local artists were selected to upcycle wooden cable spools that were saved from the landfill. These reimagined spools will be auctioned off on October 16, 2021. 70% of the proceeds will go to the artists, and 30% goes to Heck.house.
Where the Heck did these spools come from?
A nearby warehouse was manufacturing foam footballs in the back and used customized wooden wire spools in their production process. These spools were cut to be shaped more rectangular, and wheels were added. The warehouse was sold and needed to be emptied. Some of these spools were donated to Heck.house instead of being taken to the landfill. Trash Talk ATL joined Heck.house to develop this re:Heck project.
Auction at 6pm
15 spools by different artists to be auctioned off.
70% to the artist, and 30% to Heck.house
Auctioneer: Everette Beach
Everette Beach is well known as the auctioneer for charity auctions along the east coast. His start in the role of auctioneer was almost by accident. He was attending an auction and the auctioneer didn’t show up. The staff recognized him as someone who attended many of their auctions and asked him if he could fill in, and there it began. Over 25 years later, he has been auctioneering for events with as many as 85,000 attendees. To quote Everette: “I’m not a professional auctioneer. I do this for the enjoyment it gives me helping out good charities.” In his more mundane life, he is Information Technologies Director for a corporate credit union providing financial solutions for Credit Unions all over the US.

The band is a humble trio (sometimes duo) that plays original, Americana style music. We are based in the Atlanta metro area. We are a little haunted by the prairie, the wind, the shifting of tall grasses, the sound of crickets, and a lonesome train whistle drifting through the night.
