The tote board read “80” when we finally locked up NAC on Saturday night.
Small Feats, the fundraiser for the Niagara Artists Centre, was a packed house. The local arts community lined up to see and buy 150 pieces of original work and bid on some amazing pieces donated by Shary Boyle.
Work is still available for sale until Thursday at NAC during regular hours, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
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.

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!
