Can vehicle oil be mixed with the oils used for painting?

Quest Art School + Gallery certainly hopes so.

The Midland-based gallery is partnering with Midland Honda for its upcoming Drive for Art fundraiser.

Slated for April 29, the event will be held at the Midland Honda’s “state-of-the-art” dealership where attendees will have the opportunity to check out one of Honda’s most exclusive sports cars. From there, they’ll be able to peruse — or perhaps even purchase — art from one of 20 of the area’s talented artisans.

Midland Honda dealer principal Peter Brenzel says he’s happy to be involved in the fundraiser.

“We’re excited and honoured to be the host sponsor for this year’s Drive for Art,” Brenzel said. “Quest’s work in our community rivals any art school and gallery. Come out and support this great organization that does much for our community.”

Quest vice-chair Cathy Tait said the organization has a “new mantra and as Phylicia Rashad so eloquently put it, ‘before a child speaks, it sings. Before they write, they paint. As soon as they stand, they dance. Art is the basis of human expression.’”

Event guests will also be able to partake in a range of delectable local food and drink, and enjoy a curated selection of live entertainment throughout the evening.

As well, attendees will be able to take part in a live auction featuring a host of incredible items, such as trip packages and tickets to the exclusive Dare 2 Dream Auto Museum.
