For the past eight years, the Artists in Bloom event has put the spotlight on up and coming young Dawson artists in an innovative way – by asking them to create new paintings before a live audience.
This year's event will take place in 5B.16 on April 26, starting at 6 p.m. More than 20 talented artists from the Fine Arts and Illustration & Design departments will bring blank canvasses to life while guests mingle, eat and drink, as the creative process unfolds before their eyes.
More than $25,000 raised
At 8 p.m., an auction begins, hosted by a television personality, with proceeds going to the Montreal General Hospital's Special Care Trauma Unit, where so many of Dawson College's gunshot victims were treated on September 13, and indeed, where their lives were saved. The event has grown steadily every year, and has raised more than $25,000 to date for medical research.
Tickets to the event are $10 and are available at Dawson College. Room 2E.6 or at the door. Check the website link on the Dawson homepage for more information or call Mary Di Liello at (514) 931-8731 ext. 1202.
