APRIL, 2019

Jacquie Brand

What piece of art did you buy?

Galapagos Revisited by Ann Diehl.

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

BC Living Arts, Kamloops Arts Council, Kamloops & Area Chapter MS Society, Boogie The Bridge, Kidney Foundation, Project X Theatre, Pommy Rescue Society.

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

I was the ED of the Kamloops Arts Council for 10 years and when I moved on to work for the YMCA-YWCA I wanted to continue to be a part of our amazing arts community. I loved being on the board of BC Living Arts helping plan and support artistically driven events, hosting coffee shop discussion debating the merit of the arts in Kamloops and being part of a creative, imaginative and unique team of individuals. It became a beautiful compliment to my new life in the ant-violence field, allowing me maintain my connections in the arts community – and use “that other” part of my brain! As for the other fantastic organizations I had the opportunity to volunteer with, after being on boards for years, it was SO much fun to help with one off events where I had got to meet so many wonderful people and have fun for the day while helping my community.

What do you like best about your artwork?

Anne Diehl is one of my favourite artists. I have two pieces from past Timeraisers by her and when I saw “Galapagos Revisited” I immediately recognized her unique style without even seeing her name. Her work with acrylics is bold, and I am drawn to her style and use of colours that play together so well. I am always interested in the back stories of artwork and appreciate her abstract interpretation of her travels to the Galapagos.

What do you like about the Timeraiser event?

There are SO many different pieces at play in the Timeraiser! Generally events serve one or two facets of the community but with the Timeraiser, there are so many that benefit. First off, the Kamloops Arts Councils receives a commission from the pieces that are purchased at their Emerging Artist Juried Show, the artists themselves receive the purchase price for their piece, the company or organization that purchase the pieces receives kudos for their support of the arts community AND they get to enjoy the piece throughout the year. Those who attend the Timeraiser – art lovers, philanthropists and volunteers – have an opportunity to meet the many amazing local non-profit organizations that make our city better, and the dedicated and passionate people who run them. A win-win, win-win (ha ha!) all around!

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
