Support Local Artists and the CAETANI CENTRE and Register to Bid Online from Aug 5 – August 19, 2021!
Charity Auction Extraordinaire!
SUPPORT LOCAL – GIVE LOCAL
In 2020 the Caetani Centre experienced a devastating disruption of the many community services, events and programs that we are normally able to provide, due to the unprecedented circumstances of Covid-19.
Now it is 2021 and there are new exciting changes coming! We have received the Caetani collection from the Vernon Museum and have created a heritage display about the Caetani family and Sveva’s life. In March 2021 we also received Sveva’s stunning Recapitulation series from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, a series of over 50 large scale watercolour paintings based on her life story and philosophy. This fall we will be completing a large accessibility project constructing ramps and renovating washrooms, installing solar panels and including storage racks for additional viewing and access to Sveva’s Recapitulation works in the Gallery, among other things.
Now we are embarking on our next ambitious project, expanding the Studio Gallery to hold all of Recapitulation.
We couldn’t have done this without you and we can’t continue without your participation. The easiest, and most fun, way to help is by participating in our Annual Splash of Red!
SIMPLICITY IN THE TIME OF COVID-19
We have opted to move the annual Splash of Red charity auction online in the most simple way possible, as an online auction sale. We will all miss our annual event, but it is impossible to replicate it online – we simply do not have the capacity as an organization to attempt this.
Check back often to update your bids, watch inspiring videos, follow us on social media, and receive our eNewsletters for updates. Share our website and social media out to your friends ~ We can do this!
We DO hope that you will join us again next year in person for this spectacular and fun Italian themed evening, featuring a full four course dinner with wine pairings, entertainment and our signature auction of art by many of the Okanagan’s finest local artists.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
