ST. MATTHEW’S TREASURES AUCTION

St. Matthew’s Anglican Church’s popular Treasures Auction will be held on Saturday, October 19, from 11am to 5:00 pm. The triennial sale, which includes live and silent auctions, includes fabulous hors d'oeuvres, a tea and coffee room and an Arts & Travel wine bar. In character with St. Matthew's music tradition, musical entertainment, including harp, piano and violin, will be provided.

Bidders can purchase lovely gifts, stays at vacation properties, including resorts in the Caribbean and Panama, and entertainment items such as dinners, sports and theatre tickets.

The outreach component of this year’s auction focusses on youth and will raise money for the Black Canadian Scholarship Fund and the Ottawa Youth Services Housing Residence project. The balance will go towards St. Matthew's projects.

The auction has received extraordinary support from local businesses, such as Tracy Arnett Realty Ltd., Capital Home Hardware (Glebe), Davidson’s Jeweller’s, Donohue & Bousquet, and McKeen Metro Glebe.

Works of art by noted Canadian artists has been donated to the church. These include a limited-edition print "Gulls and Bears" by the acclaimed Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak (1927-2013), and paintings by Hortense Mattice Gordon (1886-1961), Edith Grace Coombs (1890-1986), Maude Jemmett (1893-1986) and Richard Vaskelis, (1947-2010). Works by Ottawa artists Randolph T. Parker, Huibert van der Staay and Heather Bale can be purchased.

Many of the pieces donated to the auction this year are contemporary or abstract. On offer will be superb limited edition prints and silkscreens by Bruno Bobak (1923-2012), Gordon Smith (1919-), J.K. Esler (1933-2001) and Benita Sanders, now living in Haidi Gwai. Two ceramic plates by Japanese master potter Tatsuzo Shimaoka (1919-2007). A fine selection of Inuit carvings will be featured.

Not to be missed is the remarkable “Silver Vaults” that sells sterling silver -- some very old – jewellery, crystal and china. This year, the silent auction bazaar in the church hall will display antique furniture, as well as some lovely carpets, including a Mafrash Shasavan side panel, circa 1900.

Registration will cost $20 for adults and $10 for students (preregistration at www.stmatthewsottawa.ca or at-the-door). The price includes nibblies, admission to the tea room, and a glass of wine or other beverage (ID may be required).

ST. MATTHEW’S WOULD LIKE TO THANK GORDON METCALFE FOR TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS OF DONATED ITEMS.
