A Weekend at Duxbury Road - Opening Gala + Silent Auction
Friday, June 21, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (MDT)
Duxbury Road is an innovative concept by local watercolour artist, Robin Light. Robin has personally experienced the difficulties local artists have in getting their works into art galleries.
On the other side, gallery commissions can influence the price of art beyond the means of the middle-class Edmontonian.
Duxbury Road aims to make art accessible. Accessible for the artist to be showcased and recognized and accessible for those looking to bring a little (or a lot of) art into their lives.
June 21, we will take you into the artistic realm of 30+ Edmonton painters, sculpters and artists. Not only will you be tantalized with delicious beverages and locally-made appetizers, you will be able to contribute to making this dream of an art gallery come alive.
Each ticket gives you an opportunity to contribute to the cause, sip sensational drinks and bid on unique artworks with 50% of the silent auction funds going back to the artists.
What are we hoping to fund? All funds raised go directly to the purchase/lease of a permanent art space + gallery in Edmonton. We are hoping to help Robin fund this new small business venture which benefits vibrant neighbourhoods, artists and art lovers!
