About Our Auction
This fundraiser is in support of Sooke "The Gathering Place" Senior drop-in and multigenerational activity centre which is an activities centre portion of the Elders' Complex being built in Sooke. The Gathering Place will provide a much-needed drop-in space for the community, space for activities, crafting, dining, games, and socializing.
For the fundraiser, artists worked “en plein air” (in the open air) creating art to contribute to the auction . The art can be viewed at the SAC Gallery at 2043 Church Road October 5 to 16 (Wednesday to Sunday, 11am to 4pm) while simultaneously being auctioned on our online auction site. Visit our website SookeArts.com for more information.
