The Gibsons Public Art Gallery GPAG sent out a call to its members suggesting that they submit an original work of art on the theme “Visions of Home” and more than 40 submissions were received.
These works will be exhibited from Oct. 20 through Nov. 5, prior to a grand auction that evening. There will also be a silent auction. Proceeds will be divided into thirds between the artist, GPAG and Habitat for Humanity.
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.
Tickets for the gala and auction (Nov. 5, 6-9pm) are available at GPAG and at Sechelt ReStore for $40.
