Luck of the draw at Cezanne's Closet

[Cezanne's Closet]
Ticket holders get the chance to select from beautiful art pieces at Cezanne's Closet, the annual fundraiser for the Union Gallery.

Some wonderful works of art are up for grabs once again at Cezanne’s Closet, the Union Gallery’s annual fundraiser.

Art pieces, juried from donations by students, graduates, professors, and community artists, are exhibited at this formal event with each ticketholder ensured of going home with a work of art.

As ticketholders enjoy hors d'oeuvres, refreshments and entertainment, ticket numbers are drawn in random order. When a number is called, the person with the matching ticket has two minutes to claim their favourite piece from the wall. This makes for an exhilarating evening, as participants keep an eye on which of their favourite pieces have yet to be taken.

Proceeds from the event go towards supporting Union Gallery, a non-profit gallery that includes exhibits of contemporary work by students from the Bachelor of Fine Arts program as well as other student artists and professionals. Located in Stauffer Library, the gallery has professional staff, but students play a large role in its operation.

Cezanne’s Closet is on Saturday, Feb. 6 at Ban Righ Hall. The preview starts at 7 pm and the draw begins an hour later.

Tickets are $150 can be purchased from Union Gallery’s website
