Art From the Attic (In-person)
April 23 @ 9:00 am - April 25 @ 4:00 pm PDTFree
On Earth Day weekend, the Comox Valley Glacier Grannies are pleased to present ‘Art From the Attic,’ a huge sale of upcycled art.
Come and browse through hundreds of pieces of art featuring treasures and bargains for every budget and taste. Choose from a remarkable collection of works from near and far, including paintings (watercolour & oil), Japanese woodcuts, sculpture, decorative pottery, photography (modern & antique), drawings, African batik, felting, quilting, embroidery, limited-edition prints, stained glass, art and vintage posters, and Indigenous art from Canada, the United States, and Australia. Many pieces have been professionally appraised and will be offered below appraised value.
Our “Boutique” selection of higher-priced works includes a limited-edition Robert Bateman print, oil paintings by Salt Spring artist Gwen Ruckle, numbered prints by Bruce Cryer, a silk screen by Roy Henry Vickers, and signed limited-edition prints by Ojibwe artist Gelineau Fisher. Works in the medium range of “Fabulous Finds” include locally-made fabric art pieces, a Haida shawl by Clarence Mills, portrait drawings by African artist R. Klla, a limited-edition print by local artist Luke Raffin, and an original “Star Wars—The Empire Strikes Back” movie poster with as issued folds. We also offer a wide selection of “Bargain” posters and prints.
All funds raised by Art From the Attic will go to the Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Through local grassroots organizations, grandmothers in sub-Saharan Africa are supported as they raise their grandchildren, orphaned in the HIV & AIDS pandemic.
This fundraising event will be held on Saturday and Sunday, April 23-24th, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, and Monday, April 25th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Comox Valley Curling Club, 4835 Headquarters Road, Courtenay. Art remaining unsold after Sunday, will be marked half price for the Monday sale. For more information please go to www.glaciergrannies.org
