You may have heard that Art Expo 2012 is partnering with CancerCare in October to bring you a brand new online auction of some of our artists’ original art. But we have an additional option for art lovers on a budget!
Bid for Art Option #1
Six juried original artworks will be available for you to bid, on a special website from Oct. 18-28th. You can preview the pieces online at this CancerCare web page, but they will also be on display at the Art Expo from Oct. 26-28th, where one can get a closer look, and perhaps make a last minute bid using the “on location” computer. The special auction website address will be announced at a later date.
Bid for Art Option #2
Thirteen additional art pieces will be available for you to buy draw tickets on location at the Art Expo from Oct. 26-28th. The cool thing this year is that you can preview what is available online at this special page. They will also be on display during the Expo, of course. It is there that you can buy your tickets for your favourite pieces. The winners will be announced and contacted at the end of Art Expo 2012.
The best thing about this auction is that every dollar earned will go straight to CancerCare Manitoba. Everyone knows someone who has been touched by cancer. Many of our own artists at the Expo have their own personal stories, tragedies and triumphs.
Watch for more of our announcements as we count down the weeks to Art Expo 2012…
