You are invited to get a first look at the selected Live Auction artworks for this year’s Art Auction. Approximately 20 pieces will be on display at V the Vacation Store located in downtown Grande Prairie. You will also have the opportunity to place an absentee bid if you are unable to attend this year’s event on April 28th. This is a great way to discover a favourite artwork.

Join us for a special evening reception hosted by V the Vacation Store on Thursday, April 19 at 7pm to see all of the live auction artworks and enjoy the hospitality of V the Vacation Store.

Art Auction Preview

All artwork included in both the live and silent auctions will be on display at the Art Auction Preview event. Of course, we hope to see you at the event but if you can’t make it, join us at the preview event where you will also have the opportunity to place an absentee bid. This is a wonderful way to support the gallery and hopefully secure your favourite piece of artwork for your own.
