The 2011 Annual Art Show

The well attended Annual Art Show held its vernissage last Saturday at Ogilvy's Tudor Hall. The show was beautifully hung thanks to the many volunteers on the Hanging Committe and the works delighted and inspired the large viewing crowd. Bonnie Stamos Destounis, President of the Montreal Council of Women and our guest of honor spoke about the ties between Women's Art and the Montreal Council as well as her work as an artist. Selena Liss, Marianopolis College professor and co-ordinator of the Arts Fest and Arts Trip at the college, projects sponsored by the Bursary Fund, said a few words about the students who benefit from the fund. This year, a portion of the proceeds raised by our sale and silent auction will be donated to support students in arts, music and theatre, especially directing funds towards the arts trip.
