Call Out to Artists!
ART ON THE THIRD 

Are you a local artist? Want to help support part of your community in a unique and amazing way? Sign up and join Glad Day Bookshop, THE WORLD’S OLDEST LGBTQ BOOKSTORE, as we host the first Art On The Third

Art On The Third is a 24 hour art-a-thon fundraiser hosted in the 3rd floor exhibition space of Glad Day Bookshop. Artists working in all mediums are welcome to participate in this event creating one piece of art work, every hour, for 24 hours!

STARTS: Friday June 3rd, 2016 
ENDS: Saturday June 4th, 2016 

HOW IT WORKS
Artists participating will be commissioned to produce 1 piece of art work in 1 hour which will then be posted on Glad Day’s Facebook page for bidding at $50! 
Works will be claimed by the first person to comment on the Facebook post wishing to purchase the work. This is about art, inclusivity, community, and having fun! 
This event will be live streamed online and members of the public, friends, family, are all welcome and encouraged to watch at Glad Day! 

WHERE’S THE MONEY GO?
Half of each sale of $50 work goes to the artist and the other half to Glad Day Bookshop for donation towards lighting and renovations for the 3rd floor exhibition space.

THE THIRD FLOOR

The 3rd floor exhibition space at Glad Day Bookshop hosts a variety of community events including meetings, book launches, poetry readings, workshops, theatre performances, special events, and art exhibitions including upcoming exhibitions for Pride month and Nuit Rose.
