ARTISTS INCOGNITO – A fundraising event supporting artists and artisans of the Windsor-Essex Region
If you have not heard about this event yet, you may want to check this out. As of today, over 45 local artists and artisans have joined forces and submitted close to 200 works of art for this fantastic fundraiser.
In addition to the artwork, the closing reception will feature local musicians, food provided by local restaurants including Carrots n’ Dates, Capri, Thyme To-Go and Sweet Revenge as well as wine from Sprucewood Estate Winery and coffee and tea from Taloola Café. This is truly a community event that will bring together emerging artists, well established artists and patrons of the arts.
The organizers of this event are thrilled of the variety of art made available for this inaugural year which include among other: photography, jewelry, glass art, pottery, handmade soaps, illustrations, as well as original paintings and prints. Attendees will get to pick works of art that they love, support 2 great art organizations, and will have the opportunity to meet the artist who has created their piece of art.
Why Artists Incognito? The artists who have created the artwork will remain anonymous until such time as the artwork has been purchased at the closing reception on December 9th. Will you be buying art from an emerging artist? Will it be a well-established and collected artist? You will find out but only after cashing in your art voucher.
In the meantime, works of art can be previewed as they are completed by going to the website “www.artistsincognito.com” and the Facebook page “Artists Incognito”. Artwork will be on display for previewing at the Walkerville Artists Co-op from November 25th until December 9th and at the ArtSpeak Gallery from December 6th to December 9th. Vouchers are available on-line and you are strongly encourage pre-purchase as only as many vouchers will be sold as there are works of art available.
