Festival of Banners Fundraiser

Nanaimo Art GalleryTwo of the biggest fundraisers for the Festival of Banners are underway at the Nanaimo Art Gallery. The banner auction with countless colourful creations of handpainted original art is running until November 8, 2008. Visit the gallery website to view all the wonderful banners - bids start at $25.00 and can be phoned in at tel. 250-740-6350. Banners painted by children 12 and under are for sale to relatives until November 8 for $25. After that date they are available for purchase by the general public. Banners make wonderful holiday or all occasion gifts. They can be used as room decorations or privacy screens, or hung from decks, poles, fences and trees to add a splash of colour and interest to any yard or balcony.

For the first time ever, Festival of Banners calendars are available to help us celebrate British Columbia's 150 Year Anniversary. All banners painted in 2008 appear in this colourful 2009 thirteen-month calendar. The calendar is available for $20 GST included and can be purchased at the gallery's two locations: Campus Gallery, 900 Fifth Street, Building 330, or Downtown Gallery, 150 Commercial Street.
