A great time was had by all at the recent AGB benefit event "Brews and Blues" which raised over 5000 dollars to support the gallery and its mandate to grow and promote the arts culture of our community.

The silent auction table was a busy spot, as guests competed to get that final winning bid on a fantastic selection of mini original art, and our thanks go to all the artists who so generously gave of their time and talent with their donated pieces. Congratulations go to Dan Boileau and to David Maris for being the top fundraisers of the auction with their two very innovative and creative pieces which whipped up quite the bidding war!

The Fade Kings are headlining the Art Gallery of Bancroft’s “Brews and Blues” event, coming up soon at the York River Room of the Bancroft Eatery and Pub.

Here's what music aficionados they say about them:

"The Fade Kings positively wail! A solid group of musicians, they were a huge hit with the crowd at the Limestone City Blues Festival. I hear mixes of R&B, soul, Latin, funk, jazz and blues.....This band is good!" ........ Ron Dickerson, Buff Blues, CFRC – FM, Kingston, ON.

"This is just one of those bands you want everyone to hear. They are that good! Great feedback, all saying how incredibly tight the band played"....... Steve Bartlett, Wingfield Farm Blues and Jazz Festival

This will be an evening you won’t want to miss! Don’t be disappointed: pick up your tickets now at the Gallery and enjoy an evening of great music, plus a whole lot more! How about:

The AGB’s site at the Wheels, Water and Wings street festival was buzzing with activity on Saturday July 5 under a hot and sunny sky, perfect for this year’s Caribbean-related theme of “Hot on Hastings”. Carole and John Kirby kept the samosas and grilled pineapple skewers flying off the BBQ and into the hands of eager customers to the happy rhythms of the Northern Lights Steel Orchestra. Gusty winds kept napkins, paper plates, signs and even umbrellas flying off as well! Roustabout Hugh Monteith collected the errant items, and filled in as food chopper, banker, plate preparer, amateur photographer, and general go-fer. Latecomers were disappointed to learn the delectable offerings were sold out by 1 p.m. 

At the adjacent kids’ tent, budding artists tried their hands at T-shirt painting with Isla Key and Diana Gurley, or driftwood painting with Ingrid Monteith. While clearly enjoying their handiwork, the concentration on their faces was intense as they created their imaginative masterpieces to the approval of parents, grandparents, siblings and friends.  So much fun was had, the painting continued for over an hour beyond the posted closing time.
