Rotary Art Auction Opportunity

I wanted to alert you to an upcoming opportunity to acquire one of my paintings at a good price and support a very worthy cause, all while enjoying wine or beer and delicious appetizers at a gala event!

I will be participating in the Gibsons' Rotary Art Auction on Saturday April 23rd ( in the SunnyCrest Mall, Gibsons, from 630-930 pm. A number of my works will be offered via a silent auction. These will be all new pastel and acrylic works, never before exhibited, and the opening bid price will be 50% below their usual retail price. Should you be inspired to support me by placing an opening bid to get the auction ball rolling, I'd be very grateful, as would the Rotary folks. It could be that you'll acquire one of my works at a really bargain price--and a portion of the proceeds will support the Gibsons Elementary School Playground Fund this year, so everyone wins.

And there's more! I am also honoured to be the artist selected this year to do a painting demonstration during the event. The resulting finished work will be auctioned off live by renowned coast auctioneer Ed Hill. This will be a fresh and lively 30" x 40" wave painting in acrylic on deep canvas, ready to hang in your home should you be the final bidder. Come by and say hello as I work on it, and then have your bidding finger at the ready!

I hope to see you at this fun and festive event, one of the annual highlights of our thriving coast art culture. Come on out and support artists, kids, and community, and have a great time doing it! Tickets are available from any Rotary member, at The Landing Gallery in Gibsons, or by calling 604 740 6030.
