Nature, art and music are coming together for a good cause: protecting wilderness.
CPAWS Ottawa Valley hosts its Fall Gala on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016. The evening includes:
- A screening of the film Painted Land: In search of the Group of Seven. The film travels to the landscapes portrayed by the Group of Seven’s artists. Conservationists Gary and Joanie McGuffin will attend to talk about the film and their work;
- Music and stories from pilot, musician, wilderness traveller and sailor Dave Hadfield;
- A silent auction with art by Becky Mason, John Barkley and other local artists, and donations from local businesses.
The Fall Gala happens in the National Gallery of Canada auditorium, starting at 7 p.m. (doors open 6:45 p.m.). Tickets are $45 and available at http://cpaws-ov-vo.org/news/fall-gala-2016-get-your-tickets-today. Proceeds will help fund CPAWS initiatives to connect youth to nature and to protect nature.
