A call for donations... Art from the Attic is back!

April 27, 2012

This is my shameless plug for a great fundraiser, organized by none other than Mama Tweedle!

Spring is here, meaning it's time to clean out your closet, attic, basement and garage . . . and donate your unloved art to charity.

Last year's Art From the Attic was such a success it will be held again on Saturday, September 1st from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Invermere Community Centre.

Last year the hall was FILLED with art. It was like a giant art garage sale crammed with $5 and $10 items, ranging right up to original paintings that sold for $500. The organizers - including my own mother Mama Tweedle - are collecting and pricing art already for the big sale. I'm sure my hubby and I will be pressed into service, too.

If you have something and are in the area, donate any time before the end of the summer- drop it off at the Invermere Thrift Store or Pynelogs Art Gallery. For free pickup anywhere in the valley or Calgary, call 250-342-1621 or email elinor1@telus.net.

All the money goes to two great causes - our local arts council and our local hospital.
