Mystery Lottery

Dawson Creek Art Gallery’s Mystery Lottery fundraiser is on again tonight!  Artists donate paintings, photographs, drawings, prints or other work to be concealed under brown wrapping.  Writers offer poetic hints as to what might lie beneath the paper… The curious, those who are willing to be lucky, purchase a ticket for a draw.  Someone’s name comes up.  What will she choose?  Can she guess what is under the paper?  Is it the piece she would like to have?  All is revealed!

This is quite the exciting evening.  Imagine the grain elevator turned gallery with spectators lining the spiraling ramp and looking down on the ticket holders tearing paper from their prize to see what it might be.  Fine food and drink, live music, and our show, Allure, stretching above the Lottery pieces, all the way to the top of the elevator.  Even those who haven’t got a ticket enjoy a wonderful evening of suspense, laughter and warmth.
