The Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre is looking for a Niagara artist to creatively paint a Muskoka-style wooden love seat as a fundraiser for the arts centre. 

Submissions will be accepted until June 23 from artists who live, work or operate in the Niagara Region. The chair provided by the Pumphouse will be the winning artists’ canvas. 

The painted chair will be sealed with a weather-proof coating and then be auctioned as part of the Summer Niagara Pumphouse Online Auction. 

Proceeds from the auction will be split between the winning artist and the Pumphouse, but the artist will donate their time and resources to paint the chair.  

There is no application fee for interested artists. Painting proposals must be submitted with an example of the artists’ painting style, medium to be used, sketch or narrative description of the artwork concept as part of the application. 

The fundraising auction is set to take place at the end of August.
