Looking to attend a FREE art exhibit this week because you missed First Fridays last Friday? How about supporting an artist with your tax return and bidding $50 on some art?
Cre8ery Gallery & Studio’s 10th year Anniversary and Strength by Numbers (2) Fundraiser will be held this Thursday, April 13, at 7:00p.m.-11:00p.m. There will be a line-up of musical and lyrical performers that evening, including Broms the Poet.
“We are actually celebrating 10 and a half years, since we moved into the space in November 2006”, said Jordan Miller, the executive director of Cre8ery Gallery & Studio.
Accessible through the building’s side entrance on Adelaide street, once upstairs, you can sneak a peek at the latest treasures and the selection is vast and varied.
For the April 7 First Fridays installment, Cre8ery held a pre-fundraising silent auction evening, where early bird art lovers came to bid on their favourite pieces before the party crowd. Bid sheets are posted on the wall beside the auctioned pieces.
One artist that grabbed our attention was John Royce Izzard, who featured a mold of a pregnant lady with images of the earth and hands painted onto her belly it, so of course this piece projected from the wall. You’ll have to go to Cre8ery this Thursday to see it for yourself.
The artists featured every month is always changing and keeps things fresh, which makes the space so intriguing.
Congratulations and continued success in showcasing artists in the Winnipeg scene.
The Arts – one soul connection to another.
