Rob Surette- Live Speed Painter + Artist

Rob has appeared on The TODAY Show, The Tonight Show, Good Morning America, and The Oprah Winfrey Show. He is a top-tier master fine artist for Disney, Lucasfilm, DC Comics, DreamWorks, Muppets, and MARVEL. His inspirational speed-painting extravaganza will knock our socks off! Guests will have the opportunity to bid on Rob's live artwork that evening in support of the Arts here at 100 Kellogg Lane.


Bilel Benzeman- Director of Sales Taglialatella Gallery Toronto- Guest Speaker

Born and raised in Paris, France, Bilel has always worked in the art world and creative industries. Having successfully advised major collectors from a young age, Bilel quickly gained recognition in the industry. Based in Toronto for the past three years, he is the Director of Sales for Taglialatella Gallery, a renowned and international contemporary institution. He will lend his knowledge in a fun Q & A format, touching on up-and-coming movements in the art world, investments in art, and his mastery for recognizing emerging talent, which he believes is the essence of the future markets.


Santi Forget- Music Artist

Santi is a singer and writer. Her soulful RnB voice with a flare of Spanish rap will take your breath away. This artist will capture your attention with her lush vocals while mixing a second language. This adds a welcome change to the classic RnB formula. The blend of these two genres and influences does more than showcase Santi’s mastery of two languages; this romantic language adds a second and deeper layer to the feelings of love Santi describes in her work.
