The Sweetest Little Thing: Fundraising Art Auction
Tuesday 14 February @ 7:00 PM
Owens Art Gallery
(Bidding opens February 7th, 9am)
We are thrilled to announce the return of the Sweetest Little Thing live and in-person! We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Owens this Valentine’s Day to celebrate art and community. At the heart of this event is a silent auction featuring artworks donated by local, regional, and national artists. For the first time in two years, artworks will be on view in the Owens’ second-floor gallery.
This year’s event will be a little different than before the Covid-19 pandemic, but it is sure to feel as warm and fuzzy as always. You can expect a chance to gather in your fanciest dress, to snap a photo at the Instant Lovin’ Photo Booth, and partake in some dancing. We’ll have outdoor refreshments of hot chocolate and apple cider served by Mount Allison’s Flame snack cart.
While there won’t be a cakewalk this year, there will be a raffle for an epic cake donated by Cranewood on Main Bakery and Café and other fabulous prize packs.
Masks continue to be mandatory at the Owens and Struts and in all buildings at Mount Allison University. We will have extra special pink, magenta, and red KN95 masks to keep us looking festive. Available for free in both child and adult sizes.
Admission to the event is by donation. Capacity is limited.
This year, bidding will take place entirely online, so remember to bring your device of choice. Bidding opens on 7 February @ 9:00 AM AST at www.sweetestlittlething.ca. Artworks will be available to preview in-person beginning 7 February at the Owens.
