You’re invited to be part of a Square Foot fundraiser being held at the Northern Visual Art Centre next month. Summer student Megan Dupas explains anyone can enter the exhibit and auction. She says you can visit the Norva Centre, pay 25 dollars and they give you a blank canvas. She adds the canvases are 12 by 12 inches and all you have to do is take it home, get creative, thrown paint on it, sketch on it, try and stretch a photograph over it, but once you’re happy bring it back to the Centre then all of the transformed canvases will get hung and displayed and it will make a unique installation for the exhibit.
The art works will be displayed the last week of September and will be auctioned off Sunday, October 9th starting at 2 pm as a fund raiser to support the Norva Centre. You can get more information at the Centre on Green Street or their website www.norvacentre.com. The registration deadline is September 7th.
