Call for Submissions – Art Auction 42

We are stepping it up for ‘Art Auction 42’, the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie’s largest annual fundraiser, which will be held at The Pomeroy Hotel and Conference Centre on Saturday, April 22, 2023.

We will be inviting close to 300 of our friends and supporters. We hope with your support to make this the most successful event to date. We are asking for artworks to be donated by both artists and collectors. By submitting a piece of original artwork or service to be considered for inclusion in the Art Auction, 100% of the proceeds generated by this event go to support the operation of one of the largest free admission art galleries in Western Canada: The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie.

 

2023 Submission Guidelines

All donations for the 2023 AGGP Art Auction are considered by an Art Acquisition Panel. All submissions must be received by February 1, 2023 in order to be considered. Please do not drop off submissions of artworks directly to the gallery. The selections made by the Art Auction Committee will be confirmed by March 1, 2023.

If you would like to donate a work of original art for consideration, please fill out the Donation Form and email to kelsey@aggp.ca.

If your work is selected for inclusion it will need to be delivered to the Gallery by April 1, 2023. Please allow time for delays in shipping. Work must be framed or otherwise ready for exhibition.

 

All artists selected for inclusion in the Auction will have the option to either:

A. receive a charitable tax receipt for 100% of the estimated value (as determined by sales receipts or an independent appraisal if in excess of $1000) or

B. receive a consignment payment of 25% of the selling price of the piece at auction.

Tickets: One complimentary event ticket (valued at $150) will be offered to all artists whose work is accepted for inclusion in the Auction.
