4th Annual Student and Instructor Art Show & Sale, Gala and Cookout

Swinton's Student Art Show & Gala Invitation

Gala Sold-Out

Join us on Saturday for the Free Family BBQ Cookout and Art Show

Dates: May 30-31, 2014

First class evening with art, food and wine.

For two days, the Swinton’s studios will be transformed into a salon style gallery full of paintings and drawings by our students and instructors. This creative feast for the eyes is a public function for celebrating artistic achievements.

On the menu: Art by some of the finest artists, students and upcoming superstars • Wine • Music • Fine Catering • People's Choice - Vote for your favorite artwork!

The Friday Night Gala is a cool semi-formal, red carpet, wine and appetizers evening. Every year this event is a sell-out. A great chance to rub elbows with art collectors, connoisseurs and fine artists.

As every good painter knows the trick to success is in the compliment. A cool evening needs a hot afternoon. Be seen at the groovy Friday Evening Gala and chill out at the Grand Saturday Sizzler.

What's better than gathering with your friends around good food and great art? This is an informal fun and tasty meat cookout hosted by Swinton's and sponsored by our gracious neighbour Jerome's Appliance Gallery, featuring Spalumbo’s sausages served by the UofC Dino’s hockey team 

And finally ... drumroll ... announcing the winner of the People's Choice in Best Painting Award Ceremony.
