* Helping Hands from PRAC
2014 Rain Barrel Art Project
Durham Sustain Ability (DSA) will provide each artist with one rain barrel, primed in an off-white color. In exchange, you must be willing to donate your time, creativity, paint and a spray finish.
As a selected artist, your work will be featured on our website and Facebook page for two weeks during the live auction. The barrels will be on display at the DSA office during the same time period.
Artists in the Garden
It is a fundraiser for Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre in Oshawa www.hearthplace.org. The deadline is March 22, and the event takes place on June 21 in various gardens throughout Durham.
Artists are asked to donate a piece of work and the registration fee is $100 - with this artists receive four complimentary tickets which they are welcome to sell thus bringing the fee down to $40. The registration fee (and donation of one work) allows the artist to have a table/tent to sell their work during the event. Contact Jan Walker at 905.831.7497 firstname.lastname@example.org
Durham West Blues Fest
Musical Instrument Inspired Art Project Auction

For more information call Suzanne Regimbal at 647-281-5444 or email@example.com
Proceeds raised from the auction will go toward the realization of a Visual and Performing Arts Centre in Durham West.
NOTE THIS IS NOT A DWAC FUNDRAISING PROJECT
Information for the Artist:
Durham West Blues Festival (DWBF) will provide each artist with the musical instruments or instrument parts generously donated by Long & McQuade, In exchange, you must be willing to donate your time and creativity. Each selected artist will receive a three day pass to the event as a thank you for taking part in this unique fundraiser.
Frequently we receive requests from organizations asking for donations from our members. It is not PRAC's policy to send requests to members, but as some members may choose to support different causes, we provide this list for them.
When you request donated artwork we know you have a plan to promote the event/ raffle in order for you to raise the most funds, so please include:
- where the donation will be published/promoted (how the artist will be promoted/acknowledged)
- do you issue a tax receipt
- is it a 50/50 sharing of funds raised
- what percentage of the value will the minimum bid be set at?
- will you supply the artist with the name of the purchaser?
- will there be a free event ticket for the artist?
Our artists are most generous and we look forward helping both you and the artist benefit from your partnership.

* SILVERSTONE GALLERY CLOSES
Due to recent unforeseen circumstances we find we must close the SilverStone Gallery on July 1, 2013.
Over the past two and a half years, we have been incredibly fortunate with the generous accommodation provided at the gallery and your support of our events as we showcased Durham's emerging and established artists has meant the world to the artists.
The esthetics business at the back of the gallery has recently expanded and combined with the additional humidity that will be generated and reduced wall space we are no longer able to operate the gallery.
We regret our exhibitions, (Waterfronts, Plein Air, Savour the Season, Abstracts and Allan's Artists) and July to October Sunday on the Porch events are cancelled.
