Join in on September 18th, 2013 for the Art Gallery of Calgary’s lottery style art gala ART Rise, where ticket holders are randomly drawn to select an original piece of art from Clagray’s top local artists. The evening is a fundraiser in support of Elephant Artist Relief Society (EAR) and the Alberta Arts Flood Rebuild Fund.
More information about the event can be found on the Art Gallery of Calgary’s website. Tickets are $500 each (includes one guest) and are available online or call the AGC 403-770-1350.
Here is a sneak peak at the painting that I am donating to the ARTRise Fundraiser.
“High Water” 20×20
I created this painting in response to the Calgary and Southern Alberta Flood Disaster 2013. It warms my heart to be able to use my artwork to help raise money and awareness for all of our neighbours and friends who still need help to rebuild our city and neighbourhoods. By donating my artwork, I am able to raise more money for charity than I would have ever been able to donate personally.
I recently hosted my own personal art auction here on my blog which was incredibly successful. I created and auctioned TWO original Aspen / Birch Tree paintings to raise money for the Canadian Red Cross in direct support of the Calgary and Southern Alberta Flood Relief Efforts.
Even though “High Water” will soon find a new home – the smaller version (original light study) is available for purchase.
