the junction where the arts and community meet

Blank Canvas Gala and Art Auction

March 21, 2020, 6-10 p.m.

Don’t miss this lively evening of amazing art and wonderful food, music and live entertainment – and the opportunity to go home with an original work of art, a fine bottle of wine, a beautiful centerpiece and many special memories.

The Blank Canvas Gala and Art Auction showcases original works created by some of the region’s most talented artists, who were each given a 12” x 12” blank canvas on which to create a new work of art. Each work of art, ranging from realism to postmodernism, and using all mediums including fabric, photography, acrylic paint, and found materials, will be offered for sale.


  • Sneak Preview and opportunity to Meet the Artists – Sunday March 8 from 4 – 6 p.m.
  • Auction of Work by Youth Artists
  • Raffle of Artist-Made Centerpieces
  • DJ and Dancing
  • Plus Two Honorees!

Honor Heidi Kleinman and Ted Ross

This year we are also proud to honor Heidi Kleinman and Ted Ross for their enormous and continuing contribution to West Windsor Arts Council, which has been central to the organization’s success and an inspiration to our community.

Be Our Guest

In addition to the Blank Canvas Art Show, the evening will feature an open bar, a wine pull, art centerpiece raffle, and an amazing array of international cuisine and savory treats. Entertainment will be provided by a DJ as well as a short (but energetic!) performance by our very own Out of This World Performance Troupe. Come dressed in your artistic best!

Make Your Mark

We’re inviting every guest to participate in the creation of a collaborative piece of art. You can either be part of a group collage or paint your own square for the mural. Or just sit back and watch what develops!

Support the Arts

Proceeds from the Blank Canvas Gala and Art Auction will support the WWAC’s education programs benefiting young children, teens and adults, as well as multidisciplinary arts programming for the community often offered free of charge.
