The Richmond Artists Guild is hosting its popular, annual, one-day only Guess Who? anonymous art sale this Saturday, Nov. 3 at South Arm United Church.
When the whistle blows at 10 a.m., more than 125 original 10x10-inch canvases will be on sale, without anyone – other than the artist, of course – knowing who created them.
Each of the paintings cost $100, with half of the proceeds going to the artist and half going direct to the Richmond Food Bank.
The event raises thousands of dollars every year for the food bank.
The guild’s Jennifer Heine, who has some paintings in the event herself, said they’ve changed a couple of things around this year.
“We’re going to try and group the paintings a bit more this year, just to make it easier for people to browse,” said Heine, looking over this year’s collection at her Steveston home.
“But, as you can see, there is a wonderful variety again this year.”
On Saturday, there will be a preview showing at 9:30 a.m., before the sale kicks off at 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the church hall at 11051 No. 3 Road, at its junction with Steveston Highway.
