Team 4 Hope member Janna Anderson and her mother, artist Shirley Hamilton, hold up a painting by the latter entitled Wildflowers, one of the many works that will be on display at an upcoming art show and sale to raise money for Team 4 Hope pediatric cancer research. The show will take place at 1825 1 1/2 Ave. W. on Wednesday, June 11 from 4-7 p.m.
An annual art show and sale to raise money for pediatric cancer research will return this June.
The show is being organized as a fundraiser for the group Team 4 Hope Prince Albert. All proceeds from tickets and art sales will go towards research into childhood cancer -- specifically, neuroblastoma, a type of cancer that most often affects children under two years old.
Once again taking place at the residence of local artist Shirley Hamilton at 1825 1 1/2 Ave. W., the show is scheduled for Wednesday, June 11 from 4-7 p.m.
“We hosted it on a Sunday afternoon last year,” Team 4 Hope member Janna Anderson noted.
“This year we’re doing it on a weeknight. We’re hoping to get more people. Lake season’s just around the corner and we want people to have a nice free weekend, so we’ve changed it to a weeknight after work.”
The art on display will include work from a who’s-who of well-known local artists.
Aside from Hamilton, other confirmed artists include Fred Bahr, Irene Kostka, Phyllis Jungman and Fran LaFavre. One or two additional artists may also be present.

“These are local artists from Prince Albert who are entered in a variety of different art shows throughout the year,” Anderson said. “We’ve invited them here and they’re going to be as well on hand with their art.”
Door prizes are another notable feature of the event, while tea, coffee, dainties and cinnamon buns hot out of the oven are included in the ticket price. Pulled pork and a bar will also be available.
Hamilton encouraged people to purchase tickets ahead of time to aid planning for the amount of food on hand.
Tickets cost $10 and are available by contacting Hamilton at 306-763-7725 or Anderson at 306-922-6488.
The latter expressed optimism about the potential of the upcoming show to contribute to cancer research.
“We raised $600 last year,” Anderson noted. “We’re hoping to beat that number.”
