QAC Gallery and Office closed a little longer

The Quinte Arts Council is still closed as we are in the midst of renovating and refocusing and this is taking longer than we anticipated. We will be opening shortly, stronger and better able to serve the needs of our valued members and our growing arts community. Unfortunately, we are unable to publish the spring issue of Umbrella but please continue to submit events to our website and we will post them. Also check our website regularly for upcoming arts events and information on our grand re-opening.

Gabriel’s Train Of Hope – seeking donations of items for fundraising auction

The organizer of an event to raise funds to help a local child is asking for donations (of anything, including art). "On November 3rd one of my daycare families' lives was turned upside down. Their 2 year old son Gabriel was diagnosed with Acute B cell Leukemia.  This event is to raise funds to help this family with the increased costs and loss of income during this time. The event (which will be held on Feb. 24) will have a silent auction and raffle table. We also have a DJ coming in for the event as well. Evening snacks will be provided for all attending guests. Beverages will be available at the bar. There will be open pool tables for use and a dance. We would appreciate any donations towards the auction. We are hoping to have all donations by mid-January at the latest as tickets will be going on sale at that time. Any donations of art work should have the artist's business card with contact info and other information such as value of the item." To donate, contact Dawn at 613-661-2855 or busymomof3boys@hotmail.com.
