Silent auction in aid of Guelph potter

Local artists and community members are rallying to support a fellow artist whose illness is preventing her from practicing her art.
Local potter Tracy McEwen, who has sold her colourful work at the Guelph Farmers’ Market for years, suffers from Cushing’s disease, a glandular disease whose symptoms include extreme anxiety, depression and physical weakness. Surgery to remove a tumour in her brain is planned for December, but in the meantime, community support is needed, a news release said.
McEwen is no longer able to throw clay in order to produce the pottery on which she makes her living, so a fundraiser has been organized to help with her expenses, it said.
The silent auction fundraiser will take place on Friday Nov. 9 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Guelph Youth Music Centre, 75 Cardigan St. It features a variety of works by other local artists and potters, as well as other donated times.
The bidding for the auction will begin online at Some items are already on display on the website, but they will also be available for bidding on paper at the music centre, and can be picked up following the auction at the same location.
