Gallery ConneXion presents: Put Your Heart into Art

Get your tickets quickly for Gallery Connexion’s annual fundraiser. Put Your Heart into Art will take place February 11th at 8pm in the Connexion showroom, 440 York St. Fredericton. Exchange your 75$ ticket for a dart and bring home a piece of original artwork for your sweetheart! The dart is thrown at a wall full of balloons with a number attached to each balloon. You can keep the piece corresponding to the number, or exchange it with another participant.

If you would like to attend the reception only and forgo dART-throwing, you can opt to purchase a 20$ ticket for the reception only. Proceeds support the local artists participating and Fredericton’s only artist-run center, Gallery Connexion.

This year’s event will feature work from Whitefeather, Carol Collicut, Ann Manuel, Joss Richer, Jim Boyd, Saint John’s own Two Autumns Ago, plus many more.
