Each year, dozens of local artists contribute an ornament of their own design to be displayed and auctioned off as part of Waterloo Arts’ end-of-year fundraiser. In 2021, Waterloo Arts will host both an online auction and in-person viewing party in the Waterloo Arts cafe space on Friday, December 3rd from 6-9pm. We will welcome guests to mingle, marvel, bid on the virtual auction items, and take home their winnings at the end of the night.
To make this event a success, we must first rely on the generous donations of one-of-a-kind ornaments made by artists residing in NEO. If you’re interested in crafting and donating an ornament for this year’s event, visit our Gallery > Open Calls tab for more info.
DONATED ORNAMENTS ARE DUE TO THE GALLERY BY NOV. 21, 2021 at 3pm. All donating artists will be entered into a raffle to win one of several locally-focused raffle packages.
Proceeds from the annual Art of the Ornament auction help fund the coming year’s programs at Waterloo Arts. To participate, stay tuned for the auction link and your invitation to this year’s in-person celebration!
