* Helping Hands from PRAC
LivingRoom Community Art Studio in Oshawa.
We're holding a "Secret Art Sale" fundraiser in early June and were wondering if any members of the PineRidge Arts Council would be interested in taking part by creating a small piece for the event?
The deadline for the submission of artwork is Friday May 30th.
Durham West Blues Fest
Looking for artists to paint musical instruments. Check here for details.
NOTE THIS IS NOT A DWAC PROJECT.
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.
* Music and Theatre Auditions

* 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.
