Timeraiser Calgary + Canada 150
Bid Time. Do Good. Get Art.
My painting ‘KISS THE SKY’ will be part of TIMERAISER CALGARY 150 this Thursday, September 28.
Timeraiser is a party and an art auction. Attendees bid against each other to win an original piece of art, but instead of bidding dollars, they bid volunteer hours. You can volunteer at any non-profit organization in Calgary and you have a full year to complete your hours.
Artists are paid for their work, non-profits find skilled volunteers, Calgarians find meaningful volunteer opportunities. #winwinwin
Here’s your chance to own one of my original paintings for $0 and feel good by giving back to our beautiful city with your time.
Join me tomorrow,Thursday, September 28 from 7:30 – 10 pm at Arts Commons and party for social good!
Tickets are only $22, but you can save $5 with code YYC150! Tickets and more info available here:
Timeraiser started fourteen years ago with the hopes of bridging several common gaps in the art and volunteer community. Timeraiser parties:
-expose up-and-coming artists to new audiences
-make artwork more accessible to the next generation of art collectors
-connect nonprofits with skilled volunteers.
In 2017, Timeraiser is honoured to be one of thirty-eight Canada 150 signature projects. The Timeraiser 150 festivities span from coast to coast with 10 live parties in 10 provinces and a goal of up to 150,000 pledged volunteer hours across the country. With 9 parties under our belt, Calgary is the GRAND FINALE, and we can’t think of a better place to kick-up our heels and celebrate!
Join us on Thursday, September 28 from 7:30 – 10 pm at Arts Commons and party for social good!
Sled Island Music and Arts Festival is presenting Astral Swans and Bad Portraits artist Mandy Stobo is painting live. There are food trucks, drinks from Steamwhistle and, rumour has it, a cotton candy machine. Some of the amazing artists being featured include Curtis Van Sorenson, Melissa McKinnon, Paula Timm, Cory Nespor and David Dean. Meet with non-profits from the arts, wildlife and animal welfare and access to athletics (the full list can be found on the Timeraiser website).
