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.
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.

The Art Gallery of Grande Prairie is proud to launch this call for professionally finished artworks to participate in SPECTACULART!
This 3 act, circus-themed event will feature several food vendors, games, and of course, the Peace Region’s premiere silent and live auction. The fundraiser is a special opportunity for selected Artists and Collectors to support the Gallery’s exhibitions and programs while promoting their work.
Submissions can be in any style, and do not have to be ‘circus’ themed.
For more information, contact Acting Coordinator, Exhibitions & Programs, Jim Merrithew at email@example.com or 780-357-7480.
Thank you for supporting One Louder Goes the Art Auction 38! It was an amazing evening and we would like to thank every guest who attended Saturday night’s fundraiser on April 28th. We would also like to give a special thank you to each of the donating artists, the generous bidders and sponsors, and all the committee, volunteers and staff who made it all happen!
Thank you to Prairie Ranger Photography for capturing the night in pictures for us. They’re up on our Facebook page if you’d like to see more images. The 38th Annual Art Auction raised roughly $43,000 for the Art Gallery’s exhibitions and programs! It showcases the community’s support of the Gallery in nurturing a healthy and creative Peace Region.
Thank you all so much!
