– Lottery supports arts education and Island artists –
April 1, 2022 – Island residents have the unique opportunity to win a specially curated piece through an exclusive art lottery.
The 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 has been raffled off via a limited number of $20 tickets.
Art Lotto kicked off with the quillwork piece Na’ku’Set by Melissa Peter-Paul, followed by the graphic painting Thistle (1/7) by Andrew Cairns.
April’s featured piece is Outland by Damien Worth, a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Belfast. A graduate from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, his interest in experimental approaches to art production are focused on the media of painting, new media, video, and installation. He has participated in various solo and group exhibitions in national and international venues and has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards. Worth has his work held in various private and public collections.
“Lately I’ve been making landscapes that hint at hidden occurrences, like a late-night clandestine rendezvous,” says Worth. “I’m drawn to situational spaces that are on the fringe of reality; ethereal sites that are dislocated and not easily navigated.”
Lottery tickets for this month are on sale April 1 – 30, or while supplies last. Tickets can be purchased online, via phone at 1-800-565-0278, or in person at the Centre’s box office while supplies last.
