Calling All Artists – 90 for $90 Fundraiser

Arts Council Wood Buffalo (ACWB) invites local artists to create an original piece of artwork as a donation to support the production of the Wood Buffalo Excellence in Arts Awards, aka, the Buffys. ACWB will provide 8” square cradled birch panels for the artist to create on. The art can be any 2D or relief media that fits on the panel.

The completed art pieces will be displayed publicly, online, and at a Buffys-themed event occurring during the weekend of October 14-16, 2022. Artwork will be available for purchase at the live events as well as online, with all proceeds supporting the Buffys.

ACWB relies on fundraising to execute the Buffys. This celebration of the arts in our region is a popular event offering various networking and showcase opportunities to artists of all disciplines.

ACWB appreciates the support of local artists and the opportunity to celebrate the arts community through the annual Buffys presentation.
