Fare & SQUARE 2023

Click here to buy your tickets! 

Fare & SQUARE is a fantastic opportunity for you to support Eastern Edge while going home with a unique work of art!

The finest local artists have been invited to participate in this annual fundraiser, creating an original 8”x 8” artwork on a birch panel. In order to bring one of these artworks home, you will need a ticket to attend our salon soiree on December 10th, 2023 at the Alt Hotel Ballroom. The Soiree will run from 6 – 9 pm, with the ticket draw taking place at 7 pm.

Terre restaurant will be providing delicious cocktail snacks, and Eastern Edge will be bringing a sweet surprise for everyone. Ticket numbers will be drawn at random. When your lucky number is called, you may select one of the available artworks! This is a rare chance to receive a wonderful piece of art at a very reasonable price. It is a fun gamble not knowing what you will go home with, but a relatively safe one – all invited artists are INCREDIBLE!

There will only be 100 tickets available for this exclusive event. The tickets are $220, and for that price,                                you will receive an original 8×8″ artwork, tasty hors d’oeuvres from Terre, and of course, take part in an evening of art, music and fun! Please note there will also be a bar in the space to serve you drinks of your choice, stocked with a fantastic selection of wine, beer and spirits, plus a featured cocktail in honour of this special event.  The bar will be accepting cash, credit, and debit.

Live music will be provided by local artist Liz Fagan. Liz Fagan (they/them) is a multilingual singer/songwriter from St  John’s who happens to be a linguist. They are known for their unique husky voice and percussive guitar playing. They find song ideas in bits of conversations, from the experiences of love and pain, and the complex world of communication.


As a not-for-profit artist-run centre and registered charity, Eastern Edge depends on the generosity of our patrons and our community. As an arts-based community centre, we deliver free and accessible arts programming year-round, providing a diversity of programs to artists of all ages, races, languages, and genders. We aim to foster an engaging community where artistic practices at every level can thrive, and every artist can be respected and celebrated. All money raised as a part of this fundraiser goes directly into supporting our diverse programming and event schedule! None of this would be possible without you!

Below is a sneak peek at what our artists have donated this year. The list below will continue to grow as artworks are dropped off at the gallery. We are blown away by the quality of the work; each year is better than the last!
