TIMERAISER OF THE MONTH

FEBRUARY, 2019

Del Press

What organization(s) did you volunteer with to pay for your art?

I volunteered mainly with Fours Paws Food Bank. I also volunteered for the BC Winter Games, Kamloops Women’s Society (Vagina Monologues), North Shore Business Improvement Association, Kamloops This Week Raise-a-Reader, and Brennan’s Ugly Sweater Run.

What do you like best about the organization you volunteered for?

I get a sense of connection to our community through my volunteer work, particularly with Four Paws. I am still fairly new to Kamloops so it’s easy to get caught up in all the good things about the city but volunteering with the less fortunate reminds me that every community needs support. To me as a citizen it just makes sense to give back. Volunteering where people can come to get help keeping their pets is so rewarding. I know I would be devastated to be separated from my pets so this is important work.

What did you like best about your artwork?

My piece of art, Shell on North Beach by Bill Fell, reminds me of the stark beauty of the absolute simplicity only found in nature. You can almost hear the water on the shoreline. It also reminds me of my love of being near the water, be it a lake, river or ocean. It’s my happy place!

What do you like about the Timeraiser event?

The Timeraiser event brings different communities together. It is a wonderful way to present the need for volunteerism in our city through the lens of local artwork. And likewise, it’s an event that showcases the talent of local artists through the generosity of volunteerism. It’s a good match. And it’s just plain fun!

OUR EVENT

SPONSORS

All the artwork in a Kamloops This Week Timeraiser is purchased at market value  - none of the artists were asked to donate their work.  This is one of the key principles of the Kamloops This Week Timeraiser - it supports the careers of emerging artists in our community.  Corporate and personal donations pay for all the pieces - their generosity is a key part of the Timeraiser's success.

OUR PARTICIPATING

AGENCIES

We aim to have 20 different agencies in attendance at the Kamloops This Week Timeraiser.  Each agency is present with a spokesperson to tell you about their mission, volunteer opportunities and answer any questions you have.  This list will grow and change slightly until we finalize everyone.

  • Brennans Ugly Sweater Run
  • Kamloops Arts Council
  • People in Motion
