April Art Lotto Artist Announced

April 4, 2023 – Island residents have the unique opportunity to win a specially curated piece through an exclusive art lottery.

Friends of Confederation Centre of the Arts are hosting Art Lotto, a fundraiser to support arts education programs at the Centre as well as Island artists. Each month, a unique piece from an Island artist is raffled off via a limited number of $20 tickets.

April’s featured piece is photograph named Succession by Doug Dumais. “Though it appears to be a straightforward photograph of a root system, the image is heavily edited and, upon closer inspection, reveals that several roots twist and curl over copies of themselves,” says Dumais. “The repetitions or visual ‘rhymes’ that appear in the image are meant to remind viewers of the constructed nature of photographs and evoke, on a micro-level, the repetitive patterns in nature that occur on a scale that can only be measured in centuries or millennia.”

The photograph was included at his recent solo exhibition, Double Takes, at the Hilda Woolnough Gallery at The Guild. Dumais is Charlottetown artist with an MA in Art History from Concordia University.

Lottery tickets for this month are on sale through April 30, or while supplies last. There are 100 tickets available each month. Tickets can be purchased online, via phone at 1-800-565-0278, or in person at the Centre’s box office while supplies last.

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
