Art in the Badlands - Auction items are coming in!

Donations for the Art in the Badlands auction have been coming in from our local artists. We now have works from Dan Weibe(see one of his to the left), and Leila Bjerland, with many more expected in the next few days. These items will be shown at the Drumheller Health Centre starting on Monday, June 14th.

We also have 5 quilts being shown in the centre hallway of the hospital. Shown here is the offering from Bit's and Pieces Keepsake Quilting called 'Japanese Lanterns'. It is a large 'throw' approximatetly 66 x 82 inches in size. We have quilts sized from Crib to King. Be sure to check out these lovely items. They, too, will be offered for auction and have been donated with no reserve! Be sure to arrive early enough to get a bidder's number so you can participate.
The silent auction has donations from our local businesses and what a selection there is! The Rosebud Theatre has donated tickets for 2 to their dinner theatre, the Badlands Passion Play has donated tickets for 2, the Calgary Stampeders and the Calgary Flames both have donated items and there are many more!
Doors open at 4:00pm on June 17th for the Silent auction and the live auction will begin at 5:30pm.
