Old artwork can get a new lease of life with The Arts Station’s first annual ARTworks fundraiser for the Exhibition Gallery and Visual Arts Programming.
If you have a piece of art collecting dust in your attic or on your mantel and want to change it out for something new and exciting than ARTworks is the event for you.
“The Arts Station strives to deliver exciting and original programs to the communities of the Elk Valley,” said Courtney
Baker, Administration Assistant
at The Arts Station.
“All of this great programming requires participation and the Arts Station is always grateful for all of the encouragement and advice that we are given. That is the reason why we have decided to have ARTworks – a giant art garage sale – that allows people to change out their existing art in a fun and unique manner all while supporting and contributing to the future of arts and culture in Fernie.”
You have the option of either donating pieces to The Arts Station for sale or letting them do the selling for you for a small percentage of the sale price (you get 85 per cent and The Arts Station gets 15 per cent).
Any and all forms of expression are welcome – prints, originals, pottery, textiles or fibres, photography, sculpture and anything else.
The ARTworks sale is on Sunday, August 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with item drop-off happening throughout the week. All pieces can be dropped off at The Arts Station. If you have any questions please contact Courtney at 250-423-4842 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. So get going on cleaning out your space and putting up a new, inspiring piece that you can admire for years to come.
