Please join us for this art filled fundraiser for the Shawnigan Lake Museum - A Night at the Lake with E.J. Hughes and Friends This art and appie event will take place in the spectacular Read Crewhouse, Shawnigan Lake School on July 13th from 7-10. E.J. Hughes was not only discovered when he lived in Shawnigan Lake, he also did the bulk of his career work when he lived here. As a result, the Shawnigan Lake Museum has been given several original drawings and we have a gallery dedicated to Hughes within the museum.
At the fundraiser Robert Amos, artist, and author of E.J. Hughes Paints Vancouver Island will talk about Hughes and Shawnigan Lake. Patricia Martin Bates, artist, will talk about her friendship with Hughes.
An impressive list of artists will have art pieces for sale (set price) including Shawnigan paintings by Robert Amos; paintings by David Goatley; a carving by Richard Shaw; paintings by Kristine Paton and paintings by Judy Cadorette.
Art sold that night will result in a commission for the museum.
Tickets include one drink and light refreshments and some surprises. $100 each. Tickets are limited.
