Benefit for local artist

Kay Lovett fundraiser brings many artists together

Kay Lovett is known for her whimsical paintings often depicting jazz musicians.

Kay Lovett is a full-time East Sooke artist who has ovarian cancer.  In an effort to help with the cost of treatments, friends of Kay’s have organized an art fundraiser. Local artists  will donate their work at a live auction.

Renowned auctioneer Eric Charman, will lead the art sale.

Featured artists include: painters Jimmy Wright,  Linda Thompson,  Angela Menzies; weaver Jaquetta Nesbitt;  potters Judi Dyelle, Ann Semple, Peggy Elmes, Robin Hopper; sculptors, Bev Petow and Bruce Gerus to name a few.

“We are thrilled to be supporting Kay.  We all love her, she is a wonderful artist and such an important member of our  Sooke and Victoria art communities,” said Trinita Waller, sculptor and event organizer.  “More than 50 artists have come together to raise funds for Kay’s treatments, it’s a real testimony to the closeness and commitment of our community.”

“Kay is so proactive, she is trying a variety of options to aid in her recover,” Trinita explained. “However, most artists don’t make a lot of money, so as a community we would like to do everything we can to help and support Kay.”

The Prestige Ocean Front Resort has kindly donated their banquet room at no charge.  The evening will also include a special event – ‘the Lovett and Shave it’ competition. While there is no dress code, guests are encouraged to wear a hat.
