“Art in the Valley” show will raise funds for Robbie Dean Centre

Written by Petawawa Post

Canadian Armed Forces Veteran Jay Baker will be one of the featured artists at the upcoming “Art in the Valley” show at The Nook Creperie in downtown Pembroke on August 22, 2022. Baker, who is colour blind, uses art as part of his therapy in dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and post-concussive syndrome. Despite seeing the world in shades of grey, he paints beautiful pieces focusing on texture, rather than colour to bring his canvas to life. The “Art in the Valley” venue is to showcase local artists and provide a space for the public to immerse themselves in a wonderful experience for the senses. Along with being able to interact with the artists, purchase original pieces or commission personal collection pieces, “Art in the Valley” will also have a delicious selection of appetizers and charcuterie by His and Hers Gourmet Grazing and a full bar. One of the goals of this evening is to raise awareness for mental health and support a charity that actively helps the local community. All proceeds from a silent auction of original pieces donated by each of our showcased artists will be going to the Robbie Dean Family Counselling Centre. “Art in the Valley” is free for anyone wanting to dress up and come out for an evening of something special, however a $10 donation box will be available at the entrance for the Robbie Dean Centre. Watch the Petawawa Post for a feature story on Jay Baker.
