Bowen artists donate time and talent to Mini Gala
To the Editor:
On behalf on the visual arts committee of the Bowen Island Arts Council, I would like to thank everyone who made our 2013 Mini Gala such a wonderful success. This is our major fundraiser of the year and the money raised supports the operation of the Gallery at Artisan Square. There are so many people to thank.
Thank you to the 60 Bowen artists who once again donated their time and talent to creating works of art on small canvasses for the auction. Without the generous contribution of the artists this show and fundraising event would not be possible. Thank you to our sponsors, Opus Framing and Art Supplies, Maynard’s, David and Shirley Wrinch and Movement Global.
What is a party without music? Thank you Marc Gawthrop for the toe-tapping tunes. An auction is only a success if there is a charismatic and skilled auctioneer at the helm. Thank you Graham Ritchie for being the anchor of the evening.
Thank you to all the volunteers who worked tirelessly during the gala to ensure the evening was a memorable event for all attendees. And last of all, thank you to everyone who attended and showed support for the gallery and appreciation of the amazing art of our Bowen artists.
The Mini-Gala exhibit will be shown until April 1.
