The 32nd Annual Art Auction raised over $45,000 net income for the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie.

On Saturday, April 28th over 200 supporters gathered in the Teresa Sargent Hall of the Montrose Cultural Centre here in Grande Prairie. Guests generously bid on 65 original works of art knowing that 100% of their donations directly support the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie.

This year’s Art Auction was a special event to thanks for the generous support we received from the donating artists, sponsors, staff, board and volunteers. Thank you to all that attended or supported in any way and to this year’s Art Auction committee members, Patricia Trout (Chair), Jean Bauer, Brandi Martin, Carrie Klukas and Rob Swanston.
