Artist Submission Deadline: Thursday, March 10, 2016

The 36th Annual Art Auction is destined to be an unforgettable event celebrating our community as well as the arts and culture in the Peace Region.

The Art Auction is an exclusive look at specially selected, original artworks created by local, regional and national artists. We are pleased to present outstanding works of art with a silent auction on display throughout the night and an exciting live auction entertainment with special guest host, Danny Hooper.

The evening begins with a champagne reception and a selection of wines, scotch and artisan beers to suit your taste. Guests will be served a variety of delicious appetizers at their table, including vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free options. The night will conclude with sweet desserts, chocolate, coffee and tea.

The staff and Board of the Art Gallery, along with the Art Auction committee, hope that you will join us for ‘Art Auction 36’ in support of exhibitions and education programming at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie. It’s sure to be a night to remember!
