If you have a ticket or are thinking about getting a ticket, this is for you. The Old House Hotel & Spa and Locals Restaurant have teamed up to help us preview a selection of the artwork featured at the Paintings, By The Numbers event. We will also be distributing booklets and ranking sheets for ART DRAW ticket holders so they can agonize over ranking their favourite paintings.

The viewing party has been scheduled for the evening of Thursday, April 28th. This unique event will be hosted at Locals Restaurant from 4 to 6 pm and then at The Old House from 6 to 8 pm. Attendees can attend at either timeslot or stay for the whole affair. Attendees are welcome to order drinks and appies from Locals during the event. If you want to have dinner at Locals, please make a reservation and mention that you are involved with this event. Project Watershed staff will be in attendance to discuss the event, facilitate ticket sales and distribute catalogues. A selection of Ken Kirkby’s and Nana Cook’s paintings will be displayed at both locations.

The paintings at Locals will remain on display until 8pm that evening. The paintings at The Old House Hotel & Spa will be on display from 12 pm to 2 pm Thursday to Saturday, April 28, 29 and 30.

This will be the only chance to see the artwork in person before the Paintings, By The Numbers event on May 14th at 40 KNOTS Vineyard.

All proceeds from the Paintings, By The Numbers event will go towards the Kus-kus-sum project.

While the Kus-kus-sum site is already beginning to come into its own, there is still much work to be done. Just over one third of the area was recontoured and planted last year in 2022. Project Watershed aims to recontour and replant the remainder of the site this summer and fall, if funding allows. The key works you will see on site this year include recontouring and regrading, habitat complexing, and native species planting.
