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!

Artist’s Statement for “The Book Reader”:

The importance of literacy was not lost on me when learn­ing English as a second language. I became a voracios reader of everything from poetry to historical fiction, my favorite. Lately, when I read items on social media, I can’t help but notice the attrocious grammar, unbelievable spelling mistakes – in spite of spell check – and a general deterioration of the written word. In public places everyone is hunched over their devices and never a book in sight. So my plaintive cry is “Literacy, where are you going?”
