Welcome to Alchemy, Actually 2014,an exciting new arts event in Nova Scotia.
What is, Alchemy Actually?
Well, alchemy is the process of turning something ordinary into something extraordinary.
Alchemy, Actually is a celebration of the metal arts in Nova Scotia and the artists who turn ordinary metal into extraordinary works of art. It’s also a brand new fund-raising gala for the Metal Arts Guild of Nova Scotia (MAGNS), a not-for-profit organization committed to raising awareness about the metal arts and promoting interest in the extraordinary work of metal artists in Nova Scotia. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to support the educational and promotional activities of MAGNS.
How does the fund-raiser work?
Artists from across the province have generously donated pieces of their work. You purchase a ticket, attend the event, and you’re entitled to take away one of these amazing creations. That’s right, we guarantee that you’ll leave Alchemy, Actually with an original piece of art for your very own.
Early in the evening you’ll have a chance to look at all the art on display and see what tickles your fancy. Enjoy some hors d’oeuvres, get a drink at the cash bar, and then sit back – or sit on the edge of your seat – as we draw tickets one at a time and invite the ticket holder to choose one piece of art and take it away. We have more than 65 pieces of art, but just 60 tickets so that every ticket holder will have a selection of art to choose from. We also have wonderful door prizes that will be awarded throughout the evening.
How much does it cost?
Tickets are $65 each. That’s a real bargain, because each piece of art is worth at least $100 retail and some much more. So, for the cost of a ticket, you’ll get to see some wonderful art, meet some of the artists, enjoy an evening out, and walk away with a piece of original art. You’ll also be eligible for the door prizes.
When is it?
Alchemy, Actually will be held the evening of October 23, 2014, from 6:30 to 10:00 pm at the World Trade and Convention Centre in the Summit Suite.
Didn’t get your favourite piece?
Did someone else pick your favourite piece before you got a chance to choose? Well, isn’t it great to have good taste? But seriously, if you want to buy a piece from one of our featured artists, we’ll have contact information for all of them and some of them will be at the event. About a dozen of the artists will also have work to sell in our Vendor’s Hall.
