Art Auction at Home and School Anniversary Concert

At the PEI Home and School Federation’s 60th Anniversary Concert this Saturday night, March 2, 2013, there will a silent auction of artworks from invited guests. These original works have all been created from a single sheet of bristol board and crayons, and are on the general topic of “memories of public school.” Here’s the contribution from Catherine:

The FIrst Day of School

If you’re a longtime reader you may recall part of this image from a photo I took on Oliver’s first day of school:

The King of Prince Street

Catherine took Oliver, and added me. My own galpumphy presence notwithstanding, it’s a beautiful piece, crafted from Japanese paper ripped and glued to the bristol board (Catherine’s never been one for following the rules).

Limited tickets are still available for the event; call the Confederation Centre Box Office to reserve yours soon!

Although I’m not sure silent auctions are supposed to work this way, I found out that I had the high bid on Catherine’s creation at the concert tonight, so Oliver and I are coming home again ;-)
