The Second Ferrari 500 Exhibition (Mach 2!) is at hand! We had an amazing debut show at Button Factory Arts in February, and remain grateful for all the folks that came out and helped make the show such a success! In this second rendition, to be held at Communitech on October’s Friday the 13th, we’ll have even more artists, more art, and even more fun…
The Mission of The Ferrari 500 – Moving Art!
The first purpose is to benefit our local art lovers, allowing fine local art to be found and purchased at easily affordable prices.
The second purpose is to benefit local non-profits and/or charities by selling art, and donating a percentage of funds from the sales of art to a local non-profit or charitable foundation.
For this rendition of The Ferrari 500, 10% of all sales will be donated to The Working Centre in Kitchener.
And the last, but not least, purpose of the F500 is to benefit local artists by providing an exciting venue to sell fine art.
For the 2nd rendition of the Ferrari 500, we have chosen The Working Centre in Kitchener to be the beneficiary our donations. We in the Waterloo Region are so fortunate to have a facility where “people have access to tools to create their own work combined with continuous ways of learning and co-operating.”
In Ken Westhues book The Working Centre, Experiment in Social Change, he describes the centre in this way. “Two decades later, it has survived as an independent instrument of self-help community development, and has woven itself into the fabric of Kitchener-Waterloo. It has also achieved a certain maturity, coherence and confidence in its approach to work and unemployment and in its conception of itself.”
Communitech is an industry-led innovation centre that supports, fosters and celebrates a community of nearly 1,000 tech companies. “We support companies at all stages of growth and development—from startups to rapidly-growing mid-sized companies and large global players”… and local artists too!!! We are very grateful to Communitech for allowing us to use the space in their Hub.
Venue: Communitech, 151 Charles St. W, Kitchener
Date: Friday, October 13, 2017, from 5:00pm to 9:00pm
