Pedalling Art Recap

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

On November 10, 2017 we held Pedalling Art: 2nd Annual Bike Art Auction at Gam Gallery. Over 150 people attended and 65 art pieces were bid on.  Between the cover, the raffle tickets, drink sales and art sales, we raised $3,537.50 for Bici Libre and Pedals for the People.

We’re feeling all of the warm fuzzies because so many people came out to support two deserving programs and so many incredible local artists contributed to the event. This is only the second year we have run this event and we didn’t imagine it would become so successful so quickly — the gallery was bursting at the seams with so many art contributions and event-goers.

West Coast Bossa played a groovy jazz set, and DJ Brian Luneza, tea sea, and DJ Wizbo kept the tunes spinning till midnight. A dance party even emerged, much to our delight.

We are looking forward to making this event an annual tradition for many years to come. Next year, however, we’ll be sure to book a bigger space so y’all will have more elbow room to bust out your moves.

Thank you to all the businesses that contributed raffle prizes, including Dunbar Cycles, A-1 Cycle, Mighty Riders, and On the Rivet.

Thank you to all the artists, volunteers, musicians, DJs, and everyone who came and donated their hard-earned dollars to support access to transportation and local art. All of you made that $3,537.50 happen. Did we mention the warm fuzzies?
