This week long exhibit will offer the drawings up for sale by means of a silent auction.

100% of the money raised from the Draw-a-thon will go towards the YK ARCC: Yellowknife Artist Run Community Centre.  We are currently planning a series of exhibitions and an artist in residence program, among many other small improvements in our space.
