PORTSMOUTH — Only days remain to bid on more than 100 works by regional artists in the Portsmouth Historical Society’s “Jubilee” art auction that ends at 6 p.m. Oct. 7.

Half the proceeds support Discover Portsmouth and the John Paul Jones House Museum while the other half goes directly to 50 contributing artists. The online auction offers an array of paintings, many featuring familiar scenes, plus handcrafted jewelry, sculpture, woodworking and clothing.

“Buyers take home a treasured original new work of art while supporting its talented creator and the city’s 100-year-old historical society,” said PHS Executive Director Brian LeMay.

This year’s fall auction lets bidders join via a special online platform. BiddingForGood is a charitable e-commerce company designed to connect fundraisers, cause-conscious shoppers and socially responsible businesses. A desktop or laptop computer is the best way to view the gallery.

Art lovers can reach the auction via the PHS website,
