The Campbell River Art Gallery is hosting a fundraiser to showcase artwork around Vancouver Island.

The SHOAL art fundraiser will bring together the art community across diverse backgrounds in support of North Vancouver Island’s only public art gallery.

The fundraiser’s main goal is to fund future programming at the Campbell River Art Gallery like its school visits and gallery tours, artist talks, workshops and other special events that engage children, youth and adults.

Art gallery Board Chair Denise Mitchell-Hills says the event is a great way to support local artists and programs.

“The We Wai Kai and Wei Wai Kum Chiefs, Brian Assu and Chris Roberts, have agreed to co-produce this event for a fundraising event which will bring enhanced programming, outreach, and exposure to all of the local artists in our community. This is a first of its kind event that engages both First Nations Bands and the Art Community in Campbell River,” said Mitchell-Hills.

The fundraiser is an ‘art draw’ which means there are 100 tickets being sold. Each ticket comes a number that will be randomly selected throughout the evening. The gallery says when a ticket holder’s number is called, they will have a chance to select one of the 100 original artwork in the gallery.

Tickets are available at the Campbell River Art Gallery or online here.

The fundraiser will take place on Saturday, November 23rd from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.
