This year Art$Pay is taking its Annual Member Show in a new direction - a unique two part event designed in response to the pandemic and with something for everyone. Part One will be totally virtual so you can enjoy the art from the comfort of your home. The Art$Pay website homepage will be turned into a virtual shopping catalogue of members’ original art, including an online silent auction and art picks from 31 well-known people in our community such as David Marskell, Tim Jackson, Carl Zehr, Waterloo mayor Dave Jaworsky and Kitchener mayor Berry Vrbanovic.
Part Two continues with an exhibition of artwork at the Gallery at 52 Regina St. N. in Waterloo. The exhibition will open on Thursday, December 3rd (in time for seasonal shopping) and all works will be priced at $500 and under. It’s the perfect opportunity for finding great gifts. Visit the Art$Pay homepage for a video tour of the work on display with art consultant Joanne Poluch (Remarque Art Consulting) and to enjoy a virtual shopping expedition in the gallery with actor Neil Aitchison! Drop by during open gallery hours or book a private appointment to view the show.
