Don’t let the name fool you. Culture Days, which is taking place across the country this weekend, is a lot of fun.
Culture Days is an annual national celebration of arts and culture. It brought Huntsville and surrounding area to life from September 27-29 with a variety of demonstrations and activities. Visitors learned about the works of various artists and watched them at work at their craft. You could also attend an open house for the AO Charity Paddle Art Auction, go on a photography walk, find out about your family history, learn to spin yarn, enjoy music on the street, learn about Muskoka’s endangered turtle population, and much, much more. There were 33 individual events in the area to experience. Here is just a sampling of what went on.
You still have time to bid on one of these spectacular paddles. Bidding in the AO Charity Paddle Art Auction closes on Sunday, Sept 29. The first item will close at 6 pm, with subsequent paddles closing at one-minute intervals until they are all sold. This is your chance to bid on 182 unique artistic paddles by amazingly talented local artists!
Proceeds from the AO Charity Paddle Art Auction go to help support art initiatives in our communities through the following organizations.
- Algonquin Art Centre
- Artists in Schools – Haliburton
- Oxtongue Lake for Arts and Culture
- Tom Thomson Gallery in Owen Sound
- Town of Huntsville’s reserved fund for future public art acquisition
