Under My Umbrella...ella...ella....

This is my latest project. If you would like to enter into this fabulous challenge for a fabulous cause, you can!

This is from the Peterborough Arts Umbrella (I get it now!) FB site:
"The Peterborough Arts Umbrella needs your support!The Peterborough Arts Umbrella is extending a call for submissions for a new fundraising event in April 2009, entitled April Showers: A Fundraiser for the Peterborough Arts Umbrella - a live auction of decorated art umbrellas created by visual artists and designers. Artists are asked to donate an actual umbrella that they have painted, drawn, printed, stitched, or sculpted upon, which will then be auctioned off in a lively and fun fundraiser for the PAU's annual programming.April Showers will take place on April 6, 2009 from 8pm to 10pm in the Showplace Lounge (290 George Street). From 8:00 to 8:45, all umbrellas will be displayed for preview, and refreshments will be served. The live auction will start at 8:45, and will be generously facilitated by auctioneer Bob Rusland of Rusland Auctions. Umbrellas will be auctioned with a reserve of $30.00, and artists will be given a tax receipt for $30.00 if their umbrella sells. Admission to the auction is free, and a cash bar will be open.Anyone is eligible to submit an umbrella and all umbrella donations are welcome. Artists and designers interested in submitting are asked to notify the PAU office by phoning (705) 749-3220 or e-mailing info@pauart.com. Umbrellas must be submitted to the PAU (378 Aylmer Street, side entrance) by 5pm on March 18, 2009. Submitting artists are encouraged to attend the auction on April 6.Prizes will be awarded to artists selected by a panel from the PAU.An artist's information package and submission form are available to download at www.pauart.com/aprilshowers, or in person at the PAU office.For more information or to register as a participating artist, please contact the PAU office at (705) 749-3220 or info@pauart.com."
