MONROE - This year's silent auction at the Monsignor Thomas F. Campion Charitable Fund's Cheese Tasting Fundraiser features two original pieces of art by Monroe artists Kathy King and Steve Esser. The fundraiser will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday at Old Smokey's. Steve Esser's interest in chip wood carving started about 10 years ago, and he has been learning locally about the art form that originated in Europe that the Swiss and Germans call "engraved carving" from Gottlieb Brandli in his shop on the near north side of Monroe.
