Many Diverse Talents Wow Art Enthusiasts
This year's take pART Mystery Art Sale certainly lived up to its reputation of being an "evening of culture and surprises," as art lovers mingled at this popular art sale organized by the Alumnae Association.

Please take a moment to view the video.

Held on Wednesday, October 9, in the modern venue of Snell Hall in downtown Toronto, art enthusiasts were lined up well before the show opened in the hope of being the first to purchase one or more of the artworks on display.

This year, with all proceeds in support of Branksome's new Athletics and Wellness Centre, exhibits included work by prominent Toronto artists such as Michael Adamson and Charles Pachter.

"The new, curated section added an exciting aspect to the event," says Sarah MERRY'89, the show's Curator and Art Liaison.

Dozens of mystery artworks, featuring smaller works by local artists, were also flying off the wall.

Guests also bid on a wide array of silent auction items, which included the latest luxurious textiles donated by interior designer Sarah Richardson, a weekend escape package to Chicago, compliments of Fairmont Hotels International, and travel to New York City on Porter Airlines.

"We had great attendance at take pART and we were just thrilled by the success of the event", said Christie GORRIE Chapman'96, event co-chair. "It is our mission to bring together Branksome's diverse and accomplished community of alumnae to connect them with one another while supporting the preservation and advancement of the history and traditions of the school. I think we accomplished that through this year's event," she added.
