About the event

The Yellowhouse Art Centre Society’s (YHACS) venue has been operating under residential zoning and

as a non-profit cannot take on commercial zoning. Working together with the Islands Trust,

Yellowhouse is getting geared to apply for a TUP (Temporary Use Permit) along with a variance

application to use properties setbacks / edges for some parking. We are looking for support to cover the

cost of complying with the Islands Trusts regulations.

Join in – Dinner parties and a silent art auction

The first fund raising event is a series of three dinner parties hosted in the homes of Eleanor Coulthard

(January 14th), Huguette Benger (January 21st) and Susan Lambert (January 28th). The

cost is $60 per person. You can enjoy a night out, eat an exemplary home cooked meal in a

local artist’s house and contribute to the Yellowhouse simply by being there. It is easy. Just

decide which dinner you want to attend and reserve your spot right away!

Spaces for the dinners are limited to 8 guests so if you would like to attend, please choose one and sign up

– and send $60 via e-transfer to with the host’s name in the memo / note

box or by purchasing a ticket through YHACS’s website, events page. Since the

YHACS is a non-profit society – not a charity – funds donated are not eligible for a tax receipt.

Some of the art donated by the community will be travelling to each dinner venue for viewing

and bids. The auction will continue online until the end of January and you may view all the

contributed art and make bids without attending a dinner. If you want to donate one or two

pieces of art for the auction, please contact Roksan at You can

either bring your work to Yellowhouse by January 10th, or join the online auction from your

own space by posting a photo of your donation to the designated Facebook page.

The auction will be held between January 14 -29.

All pieces donated need to be ready for display and include the title, medium, artist’s name,

size and a reserve / minimum bid. They will be returned to the owners at the end of the auction

if unsold. You may also simply donate funds to the Yellowhouse by sending an e-transfer to (with TUP in the memo box) or through the Donate button on the
