Haliburton ON – (July 19, 2022) – Fleming College’s Haliburton School of Art + Design is pleased to invite you to take part in the Haliburton School of Art + Design Faculty Art Auction in support of art student bursaries.
After having to cancel the signature fundraising event for the past two consecutive summers due to COVID-19, the annual Auction is back in an online format for the first time ever. On Tuesday, July 19, 2022, the auction will launch here with a small selection of art and crafts, created and generously donated by faculty who teach in Fleming’s Haliburton summer school and full-time programs.
Items will be added weekly as they become available. The auction closes Tuesday, Aug. 9 at 8 p.m. Works have been donated by many artists, including Helen McCusker, Rose Pearson, Rob Stimpson, Susan Watson-Ellis, and Todd Jeffrey Ellis.
The College will also host an in-person gathering at the Haliburton Campus on Thursday, Aug. 11 from 5 – 7 p.m. which will include a cocktail reception, special silent auction, and art exhibition led by the instructors and creators at the Haliburton School of Art + Design. This evening is an opportunity for college staff and students to re-connect with the Haliburton community. Winning bidders from the online auction can pick up items in-person at this event or arrange for pick up/shipping on another date by contacting Scott Walling at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-866-353-6464 x 6721.
Net proceeds from this event support Haliburton art student bursaries and innovative initiatives at the Haliburton Campus. Donations in support of this project can be made during the auction or online, and a charitable tax receipt will be issued for the full donation amount.
