This artwork could be yours…

{Anne Watson – Hill - 30" x 30" - Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas}

Here’s the deal: Attend a really great party. Walk around enjoying nibbles and drinks. Meet some great people doing outstanding work in the community. Pledge yourself to these people by bidding volunteer hours on incredible artwork (full gallery). If you are the winning bidder, you have one year to complete your volunteer pledge before taking your art home to keep.

The concept is outstanding. It allows ‘party guests’ to ‘speed date’ (interview) many agencies in a search to meet “the one”. You are bound to find a connection with a line-up of agencies including the Boyle Street Community Services, Canadian Cancer Society, Edmonton Social Planning Committee, Edmonton Opera Society – and other agencies to align with your talents and interests.

We may not all have money to buy great artwork – but, we all have time to volunteer to make our community a better place.  Start clearing a place on the mantel for your new art.
