Charity Art Auction at Dawson College – ARTISTS IN BLOOM

Artists in Bloom is an annual event held at Dawson College through which the Blue Ring Society, the ambassador organization of Dawson students, raises funds for a charitable cause. Over the past 20 years, the event has raised around $130,000 for a variety of causes. This year all the funds raised will go towards the Financial Aid Department.

The Financial Aid Department provides a variety of financial assistance services to students in need who are enrolled full-time at Dawson College, including Quebec Loan and Bursaries application assistance, book loans, emergency loans, budgeting tips, a food bank, and snack centre.

The event puts on display over two dozen talented student-artists in the Fine Arts, 3D Animation and Illustration departments who create new works of art before a live audience over a two-hour period, which are then auctioned off.

Artists in Bloom begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, 2018 in the 3rd Floor Cafeteria (3C.1) with the artists bringing blank canvasses to life as guests mingle, eat and drink while the creative process unfolds before their eyes.

At 8 p.m., the gavel drops as The Beat 92.5 radio host Donna Saker starts the auction of the paintings. Advance tickets to the event are $15 for adults and $10 for students while at the door they are $20 for adults and $15 for students. Children 12 and under are free. Everyone is welcome. Tickets are available online or at the door.
