DEAR GHOSTS….. We need your help!
To all whom have attended Ghost Hole in previous years,
and to those who have yet to venture into this ghostly portal…
we need to call upon thee to help us manifest this year’s
GHOST HOLE V!
Ghost Hole has been an annual not-for-profit Haunted Art Show
since 2008 curated by Vanessa Rieger. All proceeds from previous
HOLES have gone towards funding independent artist run communities
such as The White House Studio Project, Double Double Land,
VSVSVS collective and Whippersnapper Gallery.
This year, Ghost Hole V will take place on Toronto Island making it
the second year held at this venue. The benefits of Artscape Gibraltar Point
Island Public School is that Ghost Hole, in part with Artscape,
is now able to host a thematic residency component
giving participating res-artists opportunity to spend 2 weeks before the event to live on the island and work on their pieces. Also, the building is really old and said to be haunted,
and the Light House across the street is one of the oldest buildings
in Ontario with a gruesome past. It doesn’t get more Halloween than this.
This fundraiser is to help pay the rent for the venue.
If we raise enough money prior to the event, any profit from GHOST HOLE V
will go towards the artists and performing musicians,
rather than just covering the expenses of holding the event.
Please come help us make our Halloween dream come true!
(and support your local artists, musicians and friends!)
