Swinton's Student Art Show & Gala Invitation

Dates: June 14-15, 2013

First class evening with art, food and wine.

For two days, the Swinton’s studios will be transformed into a salon style gallery full of paintings and drawings by our students and instructors. This creative feast for the eyes is a public function for celebrating artistic achievements.

On the menu: Art by some of the finest artists, students and upcoming superstars • Wine • Music • Fine Catering • Silent Auction (100% Proceeds going to charity) • People's Choice - Vote for your favorite artwork • And a whole lot more...

The Friday Night Gala is a cool semi-formal, red carpet, wine and appetizers evening with a special art auction (100% proceeds to For The Love of Children Society). Every year this event is a sell-out. A great chance to rub elbows with art collectors, connoisseurs and fine artists.

As every good painter knows the trick to success is in the compliment. A cool evening needs a hot afternoon.... Be seen at the groovy Friday Evening Gala and chill out at the Grand Saturday Sizzler.

What's better than gathering with your friends around good food and great art? Nothing! This is an informal fun and tasty meat cookout hosted by Swinton's and sponsored by our gracious neighbour Jerome's Appliance Gallery. Yum.... And finally ... drumroll ... announcing the winner of the People's Choice in Best Painting Award Ceremony.
