Fredericton’s favourite art exchange and reception is back! Tickets are now on sale for Gallery Connexion’s popular annual fundraiser. Put Your Heart Into Art will take place February 11th at 8PM in the Connexion showroom. Buy a ticket and walk away with a piece of original artwork, for you or your valentine.
Artists are busy making work for the event. Arts patrons buy a $75 ticket and exchange it for a dart. The dart is thrown at a wall full of balloons with a number attached to each balloon. The dart thrower takes their number to a counter at the gallery and receives a box that contains artwork. Then the real fun begins. The buyer can decide to keep the artwork or exchange with another contestant!
Not interested in buying a piece of art but still want to come and party? Tickets to the reception are on sale now for $20. Either way, you’re supporting local artists and supporting the centres that support these artists. It’s a chain of happiness and friendship.
Gallery Connexion is Fredericton’s only Artist-Run Centre, supporting local artists and providing a venue for socially engaging artwork since 1984. For more information, contact Megan MacKay via email or at 454-1433.
