Springtime definitely keeps us on our toes here at the GPAG with March Break, our Annual Fundraising Auction and our big Annual Book Arts Fair Wayzgoose!
Here are a few pictures of the "magic" behind the scenes:
A sneak peek into our items for the Auction (and half our Studio in the Lobby!)
Our Annual Fundraising Auction & Gala Event is this Saturday March 31st, 2012 at 7pm. Tickets are $30 each and are still available at this time. Expect the rush of a quick bid, great art, good food, wine from the Niagara region's own Legends Estates Winery, and live entertainment by Adante Celtic Singers. If you would like tickets, please call 905-945-3246 to reserve.
How about a look at our upcoming 2012 Wayzgoose Anthology?
Every Wayzgoose, the Gallery produces an Anthology of signatures from Book Artists from across Canada and parts of the U.S. It is available for purchase during Wayzgoose (as are back- issues) and all year-round for $80 ($5 for shipping, if requested).
We receive the awe-inspiring signatures over a period of weeks, we then collate them, and send them off to get bound by Van Huizen Bookbinding & Finishing Ltd. in St.Catharines.
Wayzgoose will be held on April 28th from 9-5pm. This is a family-friendly free event featuring the talent of about 40 Book Artists and collectives!
