This September, Mary Guillaume, a long-time member of UpTown Gallery is having her last solo show at the Gallery: 80 years and 80% to Heart and Stroke Foundation. Prices at this show are reduced by 50% and 75% of her regular Gallery Prices, and there will be 114 paintings to enjoy.
Place: The BackSpace at the UpTown Gallery at The Shops, Waterloo Square Mall, Waterloo Ontario. Opening date: September 10, 2017. This show will continue until mid-November.
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 23rd, from 2 to 4 pm - along with the regular Gallery Opening Reception for the new show 'Attitude' - in which Mary is also one of the three Featured Artists, along with Mary Lou Hiller and Sanela Dizdar.
Mary has celebrated her 80th year, and her 11th year at UpTown Gallery. She is thankful to have survived a heart attack in January of 2016, and in early 2017 she had a series of hemorrhagic strokes. Having survived these events, Mary has decided that 80% of proceeds for her final solo show would be donated to the Heart and Stroke Foundation - a group that is dedicated to educating and raising funds for research into these health concerns. The Foundation has effectively helped to reduce the number of heart attacks and strokes nationally by funding research and educating us about how to recognize, prevent and survive these incidents.
