Sketch: Art Auction and Sale 2020 [Cancelled]
March 13 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm$15
In light of the latest developments on COVID-19 and in response to concerns expressed by members of the public, SAW regrets to announce the cancellation of its fundraising event SKETCH, which was scheduled to take place on Friday, March 13 from 7PM to 2AM.
As an alternative to the planned event, SKETCH will take place in a different form: the public is invited to visit SAW during its regular opening hours of Tuesday-Saturday, 11AM-6PM, between March 14 and April 3, to purchase works from the art sale section of SKETCH and to view works from its silent auction section. The public will be able to bid on the auction works online, through a site to be announced next week.
FAME, the karaoke afterparty for SKETCH, will be rescheduled to a more suitable time.
Artists, illustrators and designers from Canada and around the world band together for a fundraiser like no other in Ottawa-Gatineau!
Patrons can choose from the hundreds of works available in every style imaginable! With many works priced affordably, starting at only $10, SKETCH is the perfect place to purchase one-of-a-kind treasures for your lovers, friends and family.
All funds raised at SKETCH this year will go toward SAW’s new circumpolar research and production space, the Nordic Lab, which will open in June 2020. The Nordic Lab is the second and final phase of SAW’s ambitious expansion project and will feature a new studio for visiting artists and a state-of-the-art screen printing production facility.
SKETCH will be followed by a karaoke night featuring vocalists from Ottawa and Gatineau’s best bands, hosted by the one-and-only Remi Royale.
Tickets: $15 in advance / $20 at the door. Includes a cocktail courtesy of Top Shelf Distillers and food by Café Sucré and Bread and Roses Bakery
