Tall ships sail for Janet
Stained-glass artist Cindy Hayden is holding an art show and fundraiser from Tuesday, Nov. 20 to Wednesday, Dec. 19, at the Wilson House Gallery, 115 Tranquille Rd.
The show, Rebuilding, is to promote Hayden’s works and the fundraiser component is to support another local artist, Janet Whitehead.
Whitehead is battling a rare form of cancer and the money will be used to assist with her living expenses.
The fundraiser component includes a silent auction, including a work inspired by her friend and mentor’s love of tall ships.
Several baskets from local organizations have been donated for the fundraiser, which will be run by the North Shore Business Improvement Association for the duration of the show.
Basket providers include: Kamloops Storm Hockey, The Blues Jumpers, Harper’s Trail Winery, Kamloops Arts Council, Brock Centre Pub, Echo Newspapers, Pure Cuisine, Western Canada Theatre, North Shore Business Improvement Association, Minos Restaurant, White Spot, Holiday Inn and Suites, Red Beard Roasters, Studio Massage, Hope Mikal, Joelle Best, Kamloops Art Gallery, Secwepemc Museum and Heritage Park, Flavors of India, Cobs Bread, Becky Lypka, Serendipity Salon and Spa, Qphoria, Little Guest Equipment Rentals, Yoga Potions, and Bikram Hot Yoga,
The show component focuses on Hayden’s work creating art — and assisting with recycling — using salvaged building materials, including window and door frames.
