Harley Snively Memorial Art Fund
Organized by: Dee-Anne Lunan
3 Norfolk County Youth Will be Attending a Week Long Summer Art Camp because of you!!!
July 03, 2016
This Fundraiser will directly support local Norfolk County, Ontario Canada Youth interested in the Arts. Through scholarships, youth engagement events, and assistance to those in the arts. This will memorialize local Port Dover Artist Harley Snively self proclaimed Viking and Redneck. Harley's decoys and wildlife carvings were world recognized. He won various national and international awards. Harley later in his life branched out into unique and comedic folk art. Harley enjoyed expanding his Norfolk County, Port Dover Ontario Studio with amazing outdoor artwork and large sculpture through multiple art shows. He was a avid painter and often used obscure techniques in his finishes. He created personalized furniture and could often times be seen creating cartoon strips and sketches. Harley ran various art lessons for many local residents and youth. He often did so without charge. Harley often reminisced about his early days as a struggling artist. He spoke often of wanting to help youth in his community embrace the arts. He also spoke of supporting local youth entering post secondary schooling in the arts; one thing he was not able to do. This Fundraiser will be a ongoing contribution to Harley Snively's artistic merit by supporting local Norfolk County youth. Harley Snively passed away on February 13th, 2016. By contributing to this Crowdrise you are not only memorializing Harley Snively and his artistic merits, but more importantly you are supporting local Norfolk County youth with interest in the arts. Our goal is that this fund will continue over the years as a legacy to My Mothers Life Partner and our Father. Thank you ever so much. Cindy, Dee-Anne and Sheena Snively.
