THANK YOU to everyone who attended the 2017 event! Your support means we can continue to be a hub for arts & culture in Prince George! Stay tuned for the date of the 2018 auction.


Proceeds from this event help support many of the services the Gallery delivers in Prince George, including Art Heals (Hospital outreach program) and MakerLab Youth Immersion (program for at-risk teens).

Your ticket includes hors d’oevres and a glass of wine or beer. Witness cut-throat bidding wars as local collectors duel for a piece of fine art before the bang of the auctioneer’s gavel announces the winner! There will also be a silent auction featuring the work of local artisans. We offer something for all tastes and budgets!

Tickets are $25 each, or 2 for $40. They are available at the gallery, by phone (250-614-7800) or online:

Maureen Faulkner, artist and educator, teaches classes at Two Rivers Gallery. During the Fall class, 2016, she wanted to stress the need to let go of past expectations, embrace change and work in a supportive atmosphere like the Gallery.

Each lesson involved a challenge and this paint­ing is the result of those layers of learning. First a brilliant orange and red undercoat, followed by a hard edge leaf, then a sky surrounding it. In Lesson 5, she surprised the students by purposely “ruining the leaf”, challenging the students* to further the change with their own strokes of paint. At the end of that class, Maureen spattered it with light blue, the colour of Grace. In the last class, the students returned to find the portrait added which was then finished in Faulkner’s studio.

*Student artists: Michelle Taylor, Ruth Orydzuk, Terry Mooney. Julie Arthur, Melissa Dymond, Shawna Eb­erle, Darcy Jobson, Kiera Dall’Osto, Merdedes Minck.

In 2013, Faulkner’s solo exhibition, Cake: A Travel­ler’s Journey, was in Two Rivers Gallery Rustad Galleria and toured the Regional District of Fraser Fort George. Catalogue available.
