On October 16, 2008 work by over 20 exciting local and international artists will be up for auction at The Boat nightclub. Art objects on offer include ceramics, prints, textile art, bookworks, illustrations, and photography. The auction is silent but The Boat will be bumping late into the night with sounds from innovative musical acts Gravity Wave, Vowls, Southern Charles, and PDF Format.

A preview of selected auction items, co-presented by Methinks Presents is open for public viewing from October 2-15 at Project 165 gallery across the street from the auction venue. The reception for the preview will take place on October 7th from 6.30-11pm. If you can’t make it out, check out the artists and some of the work online on the Sticky Fingers webpage.

Local artists, musicians, and comedians Levi McDougall and Sara Hennessey have donated their time and works in support of City of Craft 2008 which will take place on December 13, 2008 from 12-8pm the Theatre Centre (100-1087 Queen St. W). Though the mediums of expression of fundraiser participants are diverse, all support the do-it-yourself spirit of City of Craft 2008, which features community outreach, workshops and interactive exhibits in addition to locally made modern craft goods.
