50/50 Art & Fonds, Fundraising Exhibition
Time & Location
About the Event
Atelier Native Immigrant is inviting the public to our seasonal fundraiser 50/50 ART & FUNDS. The gallery, formerly known as Meteque, is now run by the Montreal-based Native Immigrant Artist Collective and we hope to maintain it as a central art hub in NDG. The pandemic has been hard for many arts organizations with cancellations and alterations of art events. Over the past four years, we have offered hundreds of art workshops, conversational circles, and cultural events, but during the pandemic, we’ve had to move to Zoom for may of our activities. Our workshops are based on cultural mediation, offering a meeting place for Indigenous, newcomers and established inhabitants of TIO'TIA:KE island (Montreal). We are resolute in our intention to keep the gallery doors open in 2022 and beyond, so as to be able to continue to offer our diverse and innovative art exhibitions. Our mandate is to bring artistic events to Montreal that promote cultural understanding of Indigenous People, newcomers and their allies and supporters!
This is why we are calling on you, our community of patrons and art lovers, to join us for the the 50/50 ART & FUNDS Seasonal Fundraiser and group Art Exhibition. What a better way to support your community than buying an original artwork from a living artist? Emerging, mid-career and established artists with diverse voices are participating in this event. The artwork will be displayed in a salon style manner and as work sells it will be gift wrapped and sent home with the buyers.
Artists will receive 50 percent of the sales price with the other 50 percent being a donation to the non-profit Native Immigrant. These funds will be directly used for continuing the operation of the gallery in 2022 and allowing us to continue to create diverse art exhibitions. As we transition into fiscal sustainability, we hope you will join us, participate and purchase art.
