Everybody’s Art Show at Irene’s Pub

I think this concept for an art show is brilliant. Everybody gets to be an artist. Even you and me!

Everybody's Art ShowWhere: Irene’s Pub, 885 Bank Street in the Glebe
When: January 6th, 2009 – January 28th, 2009 (culminating in a Silent Auction on Wednesday January 28th)
Who: Everybody
Why: Fundraiser. Proceeds will go to a 2009 graduate from the Ottawa School of Art

Donate a piece of art from your collection (done by yourself or another), or create one for the event. Irene’s will accept an array of media inlcuding: glass, textile, metal, wood, photography, oil, acrylic, watercolor, ink, pen, prints, sketches or graphic art. All the art will be auctioned on January 28th.

Art Submission Requirements:

Hanging Info: pieces need 1-2 hooks & taut braided picture wire
Size: no larger than 11×14 inches (with some exceptions)
Value: within the $50-$200 range.
Delivery date: all pieces need to be at Irene’s Pub by December 30th.
Donor Form: You can pick yours up at the pub, or fill it out when you bring your piece in.

Questions can be sent to Patricia Golding at Please use “auction” in the subject field.

I’m going to create a piece of art for this event, and I hope some of you will consider it too. It’s all in fun, it’s for a good cause, and you don’t have to be a “real” artist or anything like that. (I know some of you are thinking it’s a lovely concept but it’s going to be a pretty awful art show. However, there are some excellent artists who hang out at Irene’s.)
