The Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association is seeking artists to create paintings for our Art for Heart fundraiser held during the 2013 Seafood Forum Gala Chefs’ Dinner on Wednesday, June 12 in St. Andrews NB.
Artists must be able to create a painting in 3-4 hours (minimum size 18X24). Artists will be encouraged to create works of art that reflect the Charlotte County area’s beauty and spirit.
The works of art will be auctioned off to the highest bidder at the end of the evening. The ACFFA recognizes the talent and effort that goes into creating a work of art. We’re asking artists to donate a percentage (TBD) of the selling price to our annual Five Easy Pieces Campaign that raises money for the New Brunswick Heart and Stroke Foundation.
The 2013 Seafood Forum Gala Chefs’ Dinner is an exquisite five-course meal prepared by award-winning chefs and designed to showcase Bay of Fundy seafood. The event is attended by approximately 150 seafood industry leaders, including representatives from aquaculture and fisheries companies, seafood buyers, retailers, marine science researchers as well as media and municipal and provincial government officials.
The artists selected will be profiled in a media release as well as on social media prior to and during the event. Interested artists should contact the Atlantic Canada Fish Farmers Association by May 31, 2013.
