Are you a painter, sculptor, jeweller, carpenter or are you generally creative?
On Friday February 7th, Rainy River High School’s Student Council will be having an Arts Festival and Auction from 7:00-10:00 p.m. that is open to the public.
The festival will take place in the school’s gymnasium and library where students and local talent will perform dances, sing, play music, do drama, and recite poetry.
Admission includes a bidder’s paddle, light refreshments, access to the library for viewing art and admittance to the gymnasium for watching performances and auction. Drinks and other snacks will be available for sale.
Admittance will begin at 7:00 pm and art viewing will start and continue all the way until 7:45. At that time the live performances will start in the gymnasium and they will conclude at 8:45 p.m. There will be a 15 minute break before the auction which will begin promptly at 9:00 p.m. Once all art has been sold the event will come to a conclusion.
Artisans are encouraged to book an exhibition booth for displaying and selling their wares. The booths are free! Donations of artwork such as sculptures, paintings, woodwork, leather crafts, beadwork, stained glass etc. would be greatly appreciated.
Donations of money will also be accepted and all money raised goes directly to Student Council to make every student’s high school experience more enjoyable.
