Shirley Elias has named her donated art piece Pianos at Play, a fitting title for this gorgeous donation to the Women’s Musical Club! Shirley Elias first made her artist’s mark as a concert pianist with performances across Canada, frequent broadcasts on CBC's Radio Two and the recording of three CDs. Her current incarnation as painter finds her blending the art forms in works that often feature abstract music themes in bold strokes and colours. Her exceptional skill in capturing moments or movements of music and bringing them to life on canvas, has led to a high demand for her work, with numerous sales and over one hundred private commissions, including to Florence, Italy.

Tomson Highway is living an international career as playwright, novelist, pianist, and song writer. He is the recipient of eleven honorary doctorates and is an officer of the Order of Canada. In 2022, he delivered the CBC Massey Lectures in his inimitable style and to great acclaim. Tomson will be our guest at our 130th Anniversary Gala Brunch on April 13, 2024, and will also be present for the draw of this perfect prize. These six treasures were donated to the draw by McNally Robinson. Permanent Astonishment Kiss of the Fur Queen
