Popping into spring with new Casa fundraiser

The Casa Art Gallery is breathing new life into the windows of the centre. A fundraiser called Pop Into Spring has begun to support arts programming. All of the funds will be going towards helping young artists in our community. Ceramic pots of plants have been set up to highlight local artists along with a few paintings. The fundraiser in support of Casa runs until June 17th.

The Curator and Arts Gallery Manager for Casa, Darcy Logan, says all funds raised will go to the art gallery at Casa for art programming, which is assisting in exhibitions for artists in our city.

There were 21 of the pots made, and Casa staff assisted in the glazing. Local artists joined forces together to do some planting outside as well.

“It’s absolutely critical to start to bring some arts programming to the community. Every time we’ve tried to plan our reopening, those goal posts have been pushed back. We took the step to push all of our exhibition programming to September, and concentrate on pop-up exhibitions like this. We’re going to have a massive summer community exhibition out here on the plaza,” says Logan.
