The Dundas Valley School of Art is turning 50 this year.
To celebrate, the art school is hosting an original chicken dinner with a side order of art. The event, which harkens back to a fundraiser from the school’s early days, will feature live music, local food and wine and a hearty helping of art.
Guests will be invited to participate in mural and still-life painting sessions under the guidance of artists like E. Robert Ross, Tina Destro and Guennadi Kalinine, in addition to other fun artistic pursuits.
Participants are also invited to wear something from the 1960s or bring an object from the era to add to the communal still life. Emcee for the evening will be K-Lite radio host Sunni Genesco.
On the menu is an art etcetera draw, featuring original works from Scott Barnim, Catherine Gibbon, Sandy Ewasiuk, Jody Joseph and Barb Sachs, to name a few, along with electronics, theatre, restaurant gift certificates and more. There will also be great door prizes, including an opportunity to have a portrait done by artist Holly Sneath.
The event takes place beginning at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 20, 21 Ogilvie St., Dundas. Cost: $100 per person ($50 tax receipt).For more information, contact DeAnn at 905-628-6357 or firstname.lastname@example.org or dvsa.ca.
