Each year since 1980, the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie has held an annual art auction to raise funds for its core operations and programming. This gala, supported by artists, businesses and the local community, is a celebration of the transformative power of the Arts, and acknowledges the important placement of the Gallery in our community.
The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie’s 40th annual fundraiser is coming soon! Join us on November 2 – 7, 2020 for our signature event of the year. All proceeds support the exhibitions and programs for one of the premiere Free Admission Galleries in Western Canada.Due to the pandemic and uncertainty around live events, this year’s auction will have a strong online presence. As a free admission museum, now more than ever this fundraiser will prove an important part of the gallery’s financial outlook. We’re proud to launch this open call for donors and artists to contribute by generously donating work in support of our exhibitions and programs.

In November 2019, we saw our annual fundraiser, SPECTACULART! dazzle patrons with a diversity of food, live performances and art pieces. Approximately $50,000 was raised in support of a year’s worth of free gallery exhibitions and programs. Thanks to all who attended, who support the Gallery, and to our amazing artists for their incredible vision and energy!
