Christine and I have contributed new artworks to the Small Feats fundraiser for the Niagara Artists Centre.

Every Small Feat art work is one foot square and sells for $200. Each contributing artist has donated half or all of the proceeds to support NAC’s programming. It’s a two-fer, support NAC and support Niagara artists. All buyers can go home with their art Saturday night. There are over 175 works to choose from.

There will be a well-stocked bar – fine Niagara wine and beer, and complimentary tapas. It’s a great night for ushering in Spring!

In addition to making work for the one-night art sale, I’ve built a baseball-style scoreboard to track the of number of works sold. Hope to see you on Saturday!

If you are a NAC member at the supporter, patron, champion, or benefactor level, the VIP Preview starts at 7:40. Doors open at 8 p.m. to the public.

Travel Bingo for the city

My wife and hosted an 11-year-old girl over Spring Break. There’s nothing more boring for a kid than a long ride, so we created travel bingo games to help her pass the time.

The first card is city-specific, designed for a trip into downtown Toronto on the subway. However, it works for any city with pigeons. The second one is tailored to the drive from Toronto to Niagara Falls, and works as more as a scavenger hunt than a bingo. You can spot all of the odd things on the card if you keep your eyes peeled.

These cards were originally posted in my sketchbook blog, You Windy Rathole! Print-quality versions can be found there, if you are taking a trip yourself this spring.
