Local photographer and digital artist Blair Hobbs is hosting a one of a kind showing and fundraiser at the Smoking Waters Coffee Company from 2 p.m to 4 p.m., in Fairmont Hot Springs on Saturday, October 4th.
Blair will be showcasing his stunningly unique portfolio at the coffee shop until Tuesday, October 14th and all proceeds from sales, including a silent auction will be generously donated to breast cancer research and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Among the beautiful prints to be featured during the charitable event, Blair has chosen three special prints of his digital art works collection including — Mum’s Pink Sunset, my Broken Daisy and Crushed Roses. After his mother tragically passed away from breast cancer, Blair honoured her dreams of pink sunsets through his inspired piece Mum’s Pink Sunset.
Blair has been successfully raising awareness of breast cancer research through his work for the ‘Help find a cure’ campaign of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Thus far, $4,000 has been raised in the name of cancer research and in memory of his loving mother and other members of his family who lost their battle to the prolific disease. He hopes to raise at least $2,000 with the upcoming showing at Smoking Waters.
Please come on down and meet an inspired, genuine, and talented artist. Join the community for an inspiring afternoon and honour those who have lost the battle to cancer, or are currently battling the disease, while enjoying an excellent cup of coffee with staff, culture buffs, and other supporters of a great cause.
