For the last three years White Water Gallery has run Black Water Art, a short, commercial exhibition where 100% of the proceeds from sales went directly to the artists. Members were able to submit a piece for free while non-members paid a submission fee of $30 (Memberships cost $25 a year so it was cheaper to become a member). We have recently been informed that this exhibition is contrary to Canada’s regulations governing charitable organizations, and in response we have cancelled the Black Water Art exhibition.
We want to thank the artists that have participated in this event in the past for making each year’s exhibition a success, and we hope to find new ways to engage our members in the future.
Thanks everyone for a great three years!
