They call it the Galleria Blues. Works by some of the best professional artists in the region (four of them will be kept a secret as ‘mystery’ artists) – will be featured at the fund-raiser September 25 event. Carolyn Holmes said Friday the exhibition is a “tremendous offering of artwork by some of Northern B.C.’s most talented artists.”
The artists have donated their works to the Art Adventure draw to support programs at the Two Rivers Gallery. “All pieces are worth approximately $300 and represent a cross – section of artistic expressions from traditional to modern in a variety of mediums,” she said. Visitors to the gallery will have a chance to “groove to the bluesy sounds of a jazz band, Something Else” and cash in their chips at the casino.
There is also a chance to sample wine and culinary delicacies provided by the CNC Culinary Arts students, Holmes said.
“For the Art Adventure draw, parties will buy one or more tickets for $50. If their number is called, they have 30 seconds to choose an art work from any of the Blues exhibition. The number of tickets drawn will equal the number of artworks exhibited.”
People can decide what pieces of art they would choose if their number is drawn in the Art Adventure draw by checking out the Blues exhibition in the Rustad Gallery from September 14 to 25. The Art Adventure Draw on Saturday, September 25 starts a t 7 p.m. Members pay $50. Non-members pay $55.
