Released by Melissa Oren, CCAC
alling all local artists! The Chilliwack Community Arts Council is excited to announce a call for artists to create a one-of-a-kind canvas piece to be used as a very special fundraiser for children’s programming.
The art work chosen will be featured on beautiful tote bags to be sold at community events throughout the year in this new annual tradition.
CCAC president Patti Lawn shows a tote which will feature one lucky artist's design.
The sales launch
will be at this year’s Chilliwack Christmas Craft Market in
November, which features over 8,000 patrons. The original artwork
will also be raffled off as part of the fundraiser.
should celebrate the arts in our community, and should not be season
or event specific, as the tote bags will be sold year round. The
artwork should embrace the mission statement of the Chilliwack Arts
Council: “The Chilliwack Community Arts Council is an umbrella
organization. It will provide leadership by the effective use of
resources to enrich our quality of life by encouraging the community
to participate in and appreciate arts and cultural activities”.
