Despite the fact that it snowed last night, I know it’s Spring because Photopia is almost here. Photopia is Gallery 44’s annual spring fundraising exhibition, sale and party that features a lottery draw for amazing prizes, (Aeroplan miles, passes, dinners and more) all donated from the Gallery 44 community. The proceeds from Photopia fund Gallery 44 exhibitions and education programs – of which I facilitate the Zine OUTREACH program.
The gallery walls are always filled with a killer selection of photographs created by both members and friends of Gallery 44. And as most of the work is priced below $500, expect the art to be flying off the walls!
Photopia is free and raffle tickets are $10.
It is the “artiest party” of the year. You should go.
