Unique opportunity for fine artists!

Are you an artist who likes to make a difference in your community? The Regional Municipality of York and York Regional Police are looking for artists and photographers to donate up to three pieces of original fine art or photography to The Art of Giving, the second annual exclusive event and live art auction benefiting those in need in our communities.

The Art of Giving will be held on Thursday, September 20 at the Old Town Hall in downtown Newmarket, and will feature donated fine art and photography from approximately 25 Canadian artists. More than 150 tickets will be made available for local municipal and community leaders who will be invited to the semi-formal soiree, which will feature live music, a cocktail hour, live art demonstration and live art auction. The Old Town Hall is an accessible venue for all artists and attendees.

In return for their generosity, artists and their works will be profiled at the event and will be formally recognized by the evening’s emcee. They will also be provided with free tickets to the event. The donated artwork will be on display during the cocktail hour in the Gallery at the Old Town Hall, and guests will have the opportunity to view the art up close and speak with the artists before the live auction starts at 7 p.m.
