Art Gallery of Grande Prairie Annual Art Auction

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.

SPECTACULART! 39th Annual Art Auction (2019)

Our Annual fundraiser that is typically held in the Spring is being scheduled for the Fall season this year. We’re pleased to announce the date of the 2019 Art Auction will be Saturday, November 2, 2019.

We hope this year will be another exciting way for the community to support the Gallery in nurturing a healthy and creative Peace Region.
