A great big shout out to Cindy Scott and Roger Bryanton for opening their home and hosting the 5th Annual November Art Show. It was an incredible evening full of colour and splendour.
The show and sale of the works of three local Ottawa artists, Christopher Griffin, Nicole Allen and Leanne Cusack, took place on November 15, and raised $3,125. In addition to the three returning artists from last year, Amelia Carney, an emerging Ottawa-based artist who is presently studying at the Hampstead School of Art in London, had several pieces included in the show.
The proceeds from the show have been donated to support the work of Spinal Cord Injury Ontario in the Ottawa region. Ottawa’s Great Canadian Theatre Company also benefitted from this fantastic event.
We would like to thank all of the artists for sharing their talents and lending them to our cause, as well as the generous guests who contributed to make the event such a success. Spinal Cord Injury Ontario is very grateful for the ongoing support of our patrons like Cindy and Roger. We are pleased that Cindy is serving as the Vice-Chair of the Board of Spinal Cord Injury ontario for 2018-2019.
