UBC's Art on the Line gala set for Saturday night

January 30, 2014 - 9:57 AM

The Visual Arts Course Union and the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at UBC’s Okanagan campus is staging the 12th annual Art on the Line gala fundraiser on Saturday, February 1. This annual gala is one of the most widely popular visual arts events in our community.

There are still a few remaining tickets of the 100 available, at $175 each. A ticket admits two and entitles the holder to appetizers, live entertainment, and one juried work of art by local artists, UBC Visual Arts alumni, faculty and students. Tickets are available at the Kelowna Art Gallery (cheque only) or through event coordinator Kylie Millar (kylietaryn@hotmail.com)

The art selection includes drawings, paintings, prints, photographs, sculptures, and mixed media in a variety of styles to meet all tastes and interests. Ticket-holders will select artworks based on the order of a random draw. The process continues until all 100 tickets are drawn. There will be approximately 120 pieces of artwork to choose from, so every ticket-holder gets a choice of juried artwork.

Funds raised support the fourth-year visual arts students’ graduate exhibition and other events planned by the Visual Arts Course Union. Art on the Line will also donate 10 per cent of proceeds to Inn From the Cold, a local charity organization (www.innfromthecoldkelowna.org/).

Doors open at 6 p.m. for viewing of artwork. The draw will begin at 7:30 p.m. There will be live entertainment, door prizes, appetizers and refreshments served.
