Strength by Numbers

What’s this? Another fundraiser?

Yup. ‘tis the season, I suppose. Everywhere you turn there are rapidly shrinking snowbanks and charity events. It must be spring!

When I heard that one of my favourite galleries in town would be throwing themselves a fundraising bash, I immediately contacted them to see if I could contribute a piece of art to their silent auction. The timing was perfect, really; I had just completed three new collages and only two were earmarked for the MAWA auction. I offered up number three to Jordan and was thrilled when she accepted.

True to the name of the event “Strength by Numbers”, there is an impressive list of artists who have donated their artworks to help strengthen the coffers at the Cre8ery. I have seen just a few pieces from the show and I can honestly say that this will be a not-to-be-missed event.

Bidding for the silent auction items will start on April 12th and close on the 15th, during a big party at the gallery. Like any good bash, the Strength by Numbers party will include music, theatre, storytelling (storytelling?) and a 50/50 draw. And, I’ll be there, too! (As if you needed any more reason to go!) Silent auction bids start at $50, so this is a great opportunity to pick up some new wall-candy and support a great cause!
