February at the Lawrence House features “Art Looking for Old Fashioned Love”: preowned art for sale – a secondary market event throughout the House.
A partnership with the local Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) has work donated to the VON up for sale. There are many wildlife and nature pieces obtained through auction at Ducks Unlimited such names on numbered prints such as Bateman, Ferris, Cowan, Creighton, Corcoran, etc. – an opportunity to adopt and love these pieces whose original owner no longer has space.
Also, some local art lovers have run out of space and work which has been part of their former collections is now available to you for your walls or your sculpture stands. There may be some great opportunities for novice collectors to enhance their body of work. An opportunity to buy an artist one loved before, but one could not afford previously and now the opportunity may be seized.
Come pick over the gathered work.
As well, on the theme of love, the Lawrence House Valentine’s Victorian Tea takes place with ambiance and costumes on Saturday, Feb. 15 from 11 to 4. Parking at Cromwell & Front with horse drawn wagon rides to and from Lawrence House. Tickets are $10.00 and really worth it.
The Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) was founded in 1897 as a way to deliver needed health care to people in rural areas who did not have access to local doctors. The Sarnia branch opened in 1928 and has served the needs of Lambton County ever since.
As was its mandate over a century ago it remains today as the VON continues to deliver quality health care to the people of Lambton County allowing them to remain healthy in their homes.
