Hey There Daddy-O! Get yourself all dolled up and put a wiggle on! Visions 2014: Puttin’ on the Ritz at the Grimsby Public Art Gallery is the Bee’s knees, the Cat’s pajamas, the eel’s hips and so much more! On Saturday, March 29 every hip to jive guy and doll who knows their onions will hit the joint for an evening of art, music and a swanky good time. It’s the real McCoy and pos-i-lute-ly the place to be, both on March 29th and for the Artists’ Preview on Friday March 28th. Visions is the GPAG’s biggest fundraising event of the year; proceeds from Puttin’ on the Ritz will support our educational programs and care of the art in the Permanent Collection. 
 As always, there will be an exciting array of items up for  auction - art, antiques, gift certificates, collectables and more. Regional artists will be lending their talents to the cause, as will the many generous individuals and businesses in our community. We will once again be inviting the public to meet the artists at the Artists’ Reception and Auction Preview on Friday, March 28th when guests will have the opportunity to socialize with local artists, place advance silent bids and review the items that will be up for live auction on Saturday  evening.  The Art Gallery and Volunteer Committee look forward to your continued support and attendance at this very important fundraising event. 
Many hands make light work and we are always happy to welcome new volunteers. 
Your help with this event would be very much appreciated; if you have time to give or just need a little more information, 
please contact the gallery at 905-945-3246 or
