Saturday, September 14th | Noon - 8:00 pm

This year at Kaleido, hearts are bursting with creativity as hands are filled with new art supplies.

Visit the ART SUPPLY SWAP TENT to trade your unused art supplies for new (or new-to-you) supplies. One artist's unused canvas is another artist's masterpiece waiting to emerge!

All trade-ins must be in good, usable condition (ie. no expired paints). Some examples include brushes, acrylic or oil paints/mediums, watercolours, drawing supplies, art paper/sketchbooks, canvasses/panels, frames, sculpting supplies, printmaking ink/rollers, collage ephemera.

Everyone is welcome to stop by the tent to swap or donate items any time between NOON - 8pm on Saturday Sept 14th. One day only!

Brought to you by Bleeding Heart Art Space. Bleeding Heart has been loving artists and building creative community on Alberta Avenue since 2012.

Unity Project - Fibre Art Installation

UNITY is a circular arrangement of 32 poles. Each pole is labeled with an identifier. Participants tie yarn to each pole with which they identify, and as more people participate, a canopy of interconnectedness forms. In the end, we see that we are all connected by something.

A big thank you to ATB for sponsoring this project and helping the community grow closer.
