As part of being DIY, Ravenswing is financially self-sufficient.  We run with no sponsors or state funding.  Our expenses are paid through our vendors’ fees, which are kept low to help support our local artisans, and through our Silent Art Auction. 

This year, we have a gallery of art from some of Ottawa’s best artists, including Stefan Thomson, Tyler Ivan Goodman, Dane Atkinson, John Orbit Bainbridge, Colin White, Lily Pepper, Emily Catherine Ostrum, Mary Ellis, Rich Lauzon, Jessie Tessier, Charlotte Jane Healey and Lia Belkie.

The Auction will be set up at Elgin and Gilmour. 

Here is a photo from last year’s auction:
