Tonight’s the night we’ve been waiting for!
What: Everybody’s Art Show
Where: Irene’s Pub, 885 Bank Street, in the Glebe
When: Wednesday January 28th, starting at 6:30 p.m.
What exactly: A silent auction of about 35 pieces of original art donated by various artists and regulars who frequent Irene’s Pub. It includes Zoom and GC’s first collaborative piece, and another piece by Zoom.
Why: All proceeds go to a 2009 graduate of the Ottawa School of Art.
My understanding of how this works is you need to show up around 6:30 and get registered to bid. Then bidding will open for half an hour on the first wall of art. Winners will be determined and then bidding will move to the second wall. And then the third. And so on.
GC and I are very excited about this. We’re not artists, but we just started taking a mixed media course at the Ottawa School of Art. Our teacher is CBC Radio’s Dipna Horra. Every time we see a poster advertising Everybody’s Art Show, we elbow each other and giggle, because it’s kind of preposterous that our art is hanging in an actual art show.
So anyway, if you’re looking for something to do and somewhere to go during a blizzard in a bus strike tonight, come on down to Irene’s!
