50/50 Art Draw 2020

May 2, 7 pm at ARTSPACE
Party Tickets $25 / Art Draw Tickets $100

Join us for Artspace’s fundraising party of the year and your chance to walk away with some great art. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 2, 2020, and includes the 50/50 Art Draw, the Fire Sale, a Silent Auction, great food, and a ton of amazing door prizes!

Here's how the art draw works:

  • You buy an Art Draw ticket.
  • When the draw begins, the MC will draw a ticket at random and call out a number.
  • The ticket holder with that number will choose a piece of art off the wall.
  • This will go on until all of the numbers have been called.
  • Everyone with an Art Draw ticket goes home with a piece of art!

Profits from all art sales are shared between our participating artists and Artspace.

There are two ticket options for the 50/50

Draw Ticket - $100

With a DRAW TICKET in hand, you are guaranteed to go home with a beautiful piece of art from a local artist! When the draw begins, you wait for your number to be called. When called, you pick your favourite work from the wall and Artspace will wrap it up so you can take it home!

You can also take part in the silent auction and Fire Sale, while enjoying a complimentary drink, snacks from local vendors, and great music.

Party Ticket - $25

With a PARTY TICKET, you can take part in the silent auction and Fire Sale, while enjoying a complimentary drink, snacks from local vendors, and great music.

Tickets will be on sale in April. 

Calling All Artists!

If you are an artist and you want to participate in this year's 50/50 Art Draw, please review the information below. Everyone is welcome to take part!

What is the 50/50 Art Draw? The 50/50 Art Draw is the main fundraising activity for the evening. We ask participating artists to submit works of art valued at $100. Draw Ticket holders will choose a work of art when their number is drawn. All profits from the draw will be shared equally between the artist and Artspace. In addition, artists will receive a charitable donation receipt.

Fire Sale Finale: For 40 minutes after the conclusion of the Art Draw, works in the Fire Sale will be available for $80. Works that aren't picked up during round one of the Fire Sale will then be offered in another round for the final price of $60. The Fire Sale is a last-chance opportunity to sell unsold pieces. Please note: the Fire Sale is optional.

Count Me In! If you're interested in participating, works for the 50/50 Art Draw should be delivered to Artspace between March 31 - April 23, 2020. Contributing Artists receive a complimentary party ticket to the 50/50 event.

All works must be ready to hang, with the artist's name, contact information, and title on the back of the work.

The Public Preview of the work will begin on Friday, April 24, 2020
