What does home mean to you? Four walls? The open road and a steering wheel? A state of mind?
The Gibsons Public Art Gallery is calling all artists to reflect on the meaning of home and submit original works of art for an exhibition and auction in support of Habitat for Humanity and our local public art gallery.
The exhibition, from October 20 – November 6, will feature art work in all mediums. This is a three way fundraiser, with all proceeds divided into thirds for the artist, Habitat for Humanity, and the Gibsons Public Art Gallery.
The submission deadline is September 30, with artwork due on October 14. Art will be sold by silent auction throughout the exhibition, with a selection of works to be sold at a live auction ticketed event on the evening of Saturday, November 5. Art lovers: take note of that date.
A similar fundraiser, held in 2011, raised over $14,000 for Habitat and the Gallery. The format for the 2016 exhibition has been adapted to recognize the huge demand placed on local artists for contributions to local fundraising. The Gallery would like to recognize and draw attention to the incredible generosity of our local artists in supporting the work of non-profit groups in our community.
