Artists in Bloom
April 18 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10 – $20
Artists in Bloom is an annual event held at Dawson College through which the Blue Ring Society, the ambassador organization of Dawson students, raises funds for a charitable cause. Over the past 20 years, the event has raised around $140,000 for a variety of causes. This year all the funds raised will go towards the Dawson College First People’s Initiative and Youtheatre.
The event puts on display over two dozen talented student-artists in the Fine Arts, 3D Animation and Illustration departments who create new works of art before a live audience over a two-hour period, which are then auctioned off.
Artists in Bloom begins at 6 p.m. in the 3rd Floor Cafeteria (3C.1) with the artists bringing blank canvasses to life as guests mingle, eat and drink while the creative process unfolds before their eyes.
At 8 p.m., the gavel drops as The Beat 92.5 radio host Donna Saker starts the auction of the paintings. Advance tickets to the event are $15 for adults and $10 for students while at the door they are $20 for adults and $15 for students. Children 12 and under are free. Everyone is welcome. Tickets are available online or at the door.
