OSGOODE — In the past year, the Osgoode Township Museum has been offering free virtual paint nights called Paint & Pixels over Zoom to connect with the community in these isolating times. Through this process and other artistic endeavours, the museum has accumulated 35 pieces of handmade art to offer up for auction.

The Virtual Charity Art Auction takes place this June 9th through June 11th on the Sweet Peas Pantry Too well-established Facebook page. All instructions for participating in the auction will be posted, along with the photographs, dimensions and medium of each art piece.
