For Arts’ Sake, The Fredericton Arts Alliance’s gala fundraising evening returns Oct. 20.
The Fredericton Arts Alliance’ annual gala is back after a two year absence. This major fundraiser brings together an excellent selection of fine art and fine craft by well-known and emerging New Brunswick artists and artisans, in a lively atmosphere of music, food and conversation. There will be both live and silent auctions throughout the evening.
This year’s event will feature music by Don Bossé’s jazz ensemble.
Proceeds from the evening will support FAA’s the on-going programs, including ArtsNEWS, and a summer artists in residence program that connects artists and the public. Unlike many charity auctions, the FAA does not ask artists to donate their work; rather, artists receive either a tax receipt for the full value of their work or half of the selling price.
Tickets are on sale for $50 at Westminster Books, the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, and Gallery on Queen.
