"The Station" by J Peachy

J Peachy is an artist, mental health advocate, radio host, comedian, and all-around great Canadian guy.  This month, he is helping raise money for the Port Moody Station Museum by donating 50% of the proceeds from a sealed-bid auction of his painting “The Station.”

In this sealed-bid auction, each bidder secretly bids without knowing how much others have offered for the painting, with a minimum bid of $50. The highest bid and the winner of the painting will be announced on July 3rd at the Museum during our 125th CPR Train Anniversary Celebration. All bidders will also be entered to win a random draw for a J Peachy print (valued at $30).

Bids can be sent in by email (to laurel@portmoodymuseum.org) or dropped off in person at the Museum, where the painting is on display daily from 10 am to 5 pm. Emails must contain your full name, email address, phone number, and your bid. The last bids will be accepted at 3:00 pm on July 3rd.

Your bid will help support the Museum and a local artist, and maybe add a beautiful new work of art to your collection!
