Small Feats is next Saturday

Next Saturday, the Niagara Artists Centre (NAC) will be holding its annual fundraiser, Small Feats, in St. Catharines, ON. Over two hundred works of original art (photography, painting, assemblage, printing) will be for sale in a sideshow-esque setting of ringing bells and general excitement. Every artwork is one square foot. As always, Christine and I have contributed work to the event.

Smartly-dressed Concierges (myself included) will take your art orders from our side of the velvet rope. A giant tote board will count up the sales as they happen. Refreshments are also available. Small Feats is a great fundraiser and a spring coming-out party as well.

If there’s a specific artist’s work you really want to get your hands on, the best way is to be a NAC member at the Supporter level or higher. Such members are admitted to the event 20 minutes before the doors open and often pounce when the starting bell rings.

Saturday, April 11, 2015
Doors at 8:00 p.m. – VIP Preview at 7:40 p.m*
$5 admission

Christine and I finished up the giant heads and accompanying costumes and accessories last week. We opened Swizzle Studio’s front door to show the finished foam sculptures to our friends and neighbours.

The Head Table will come to life on Saturday, November 22, at STRUTT, the jaw-dropping wearable art show in St. Catherines, Ontario.
