MAWA's Over The Top

over the top
Don’t miss the art event of the year! MAWA’s Over the Top Art Auction and Cupcake Party returns for its seventh year on Sunday March 20 2011, from 2- 5 pm. This year they are coining the event The Day of 1000 Cupcakes!

Join the party! Bid on artwork, buy gift-basket raffle tickets and eat cupcakes to your heart’s content! Last year Over the Top brought in over 400 visitors to MAWA, and over 120 artists donated artwork.

WANT TO GET INVOLVED? There are so many ways you can participate: attending the event, donating artwork, baking, volunteering…. Check out their Frequently Asked Questions pdf on our website (www.mawa.ca) for more information!

This year they have confirmation of art donations by some of the city’s brightest art stars:

  • Wanda Koop
  • Melanie Rocan
  • William Eakin
  • Dominique Rey
  • Krisjanis Kaktins-Gorsline
  • Diana Thorneycroft
  • Shirley Brown
  • Lisa Stinner
  • And many more!

You can donate art too! They accept artwork in any media! To donate, email mawaoverthetop@gmail.com, and download the Artist Contract (see below).

Perhaps you’d like to get creative by baking cupcakes for the event? Help them to make “The Day of 1000 Cupcakes” a tasty reality! If you would like to make cupcakes, please email mawacupcakes@gmail.com.

If you’d like to volunteer for a number of roles on the day of the event (from greeting at the door to selling gift-basket raffle tickets), please contact Lisa at 949-9490 or email programs@mawa.ca with subject line “Over the Top volunteer”.

We have been attending this even for 4 years, and it is a highlite of our spring.  We always come home with a peice of art, a belly full of sweets and a few new friends.  Please join us and say hello if you happen to see us.
