Here’s an interesting event coming up: it’s being held at the Accelerator Centre and it’s a fundraiser for the local arts scene.
Brush with Art Fundraising Event
Reception and Silent Auction with Refreshments
Date: Thursday November 5th, 7pm – 9pm
Location: Accelerator Centre, Room 240
There’s no official website that I could find for it – but here are the details:
The November 5th event is a reception and silent auction with refreshments. In the course of the evening Brush with Art will be presenting the proceeds of last year’s fundraising film premier to the recipient organizations. The cost to attend the reception is $25.00 per person. One of the items featured in the silent auction is a very special outing with KW|AG’s own Director General, Alf Bogusky-have a look:
On The Road With Alf
Join KW|AG Director General Alf Bogusky on an early morning drive to some of his favourite countryside locales, including a few of the sites featured in our 2008 Geoffrey James’ Field Notes exhibition. Alf’s countryside ramblings provide him with insight and inspiration. Come and share your ideas with him, and generate some new ones along the way, while enjoying the beautiful Waterloo County landscape. Round out your morning with breakfast at Angie’s, another of Alf’s favourite haunts. Trip to be arranged at a mutually convenient time, within a one-year period
Over its history, Brush with Art has raised over $150,000 to support the visual arts in Waterloo Region. The funds they raise are given to the Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery (KW|AG), Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery and the Cambridge Galleries to enhance their education programs for 1,000’s of children in our Region. As well Brush with Art has created an endowment managed by the Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation through which a grant is given annually to a worthwhile visual arts project in the Region.
