Now, they're looking to get a little love back from the locals: they're hosting a benefit event at Creekbread on Tuesday, Aug. 17, hoping to raise funds for future programming and other initiatives to keep Whistler's true history alive.

From 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., people can come out and dig into some fresh pizza and beer with family and friends, while Glenn Mishaw entertains the crowd with an acoustic set or two.

Anyone who comes out to take part in the event will have a chance to win a door prize. People can also purchase tickets for a raffle with a bunch of great prizes up for grabs: $500 worth of Nesters Market Gift Certificates, a Nesters gift basket, two Zoom Zipline passes for Wildplay Whistler, a five-day Edge Card for Whistler Blackcomb, a one-night stay at the Westin, four movie passes for two to Village 8 Cinemas, and two passes to the Scandinave Baths.

Last call for Bizarre art

Whistler's original artisan market, Bizarre Bazaar, will take place on Nov. 26-27 this year. Organizers are asking any artisans interested in taking part to get their submission packages together, ASAP.

The annual event features over 100 artisans from throughout the Sea to Sky corridor and across the province working in a range of mediums including ceramics, wood, glass, jewelry, metal, leather, aromatherapy, food and clothing. In addition to the assortment of handcrafted goods, the two-day event includes local entertainment and a silent auction. Bizarre Bazaar attracts more than 5,000 visitors each year.

The Bazaar is a juried process, with the majority of products handcrafted. At least 65 per cent of accepted artisans will be from the Sea to Sky region.

Anyone interested in selling their wares at the 2010 Bizarre Bazaar must submit an application, which includes clear photos, a detailed description of their work and a photo or drawing of their booth set-up.

Visit www.whistlerartscouncil.com for guidelines and to apply online. But the deadline for application is Friday, Aug. 13 at 4 p.m., so get your package together quickly!

 

Where Arts and Business collide

Do you know a local business or businessperson who has made a significant contribution to Whistler's art scene? You should consider nominating them for the 2010 Business and the Arts Award.

This is the seventh year that the Whistler Arts Council and Whistler Chamber of Commerce have offered the award, which recognizes a local business or individual business leader for making a significant contribution to Whistler's arts, culture and heritage community within the past year.
