Pumphouse sale features 300 donated artworks

Everyone at the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre is gearing up for its major art sale next week.

The annual sale, which runs Dec. 2 to 4, features original artwork by Niagara-on-the-Lake painters and items from personal collections.

“Everyone’s excited. We’re getting ready for it,” said Aimee Medina, marketing co-ordinator for the Pumphouse.

“We were able to gather more than 300 pieces of artwork. This was all volunteer-run. Our volunteers were very determined to make this fundraiser our biggest yet.”

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to the art centre’s children and youth programs, such as the healing arts for kids and family-friendly online studio and in-person studio programs.

Pumphouse membership holders will get a first look at the artwork on Dec. 1 from 4:30 till 7 p.m. Potential art collectors better get their early if they want the good stuff.

“I have my eye already on some of the pieces. There’s a Campbell Scott (painting) that was donated so I’m watching out for it,” Medina said with a laugh.
