The Art Gallery of Mississauga Annual Art Auction is already one of the most anticipated art events of the region, but this year, in celebration of the AGM’s 30th anniversary, it is even more special! As always, a live auction offers the chance to take home an original work by any one of a roster of talented artists, ranging from local luminaries such as Lila Lewis Irving and Panchal Mansaram, to the latest buzz-worthy emerging talents like Claire Scherzinger, Kotama Bouabane and Jaime Angelopoulos, as well as notable Canadian artists such as Libby Hague, Charles Pachter, and Diyan Achjadi. The AGM is thrilled to once again have Stephen Ranger, Senior Consultant at Waddington’s as our dynamic auctioneer!
Whether your tastes run to painterly landscapes, contemporary photography, or bold abstract pieces, there is something to catch everyone’s eye, with all proceeds going towards the AGM’s innovative public programs, artist projects and exhibitions. Join us in ushering the gallery into its next 30 years, and take home a unique reminder of the amazing art and artists that have made the AGM the respected institution that it is today!
“Over the past 30 years, the Art Gallery of Mississauga has produced an amazing array of exhibitions and public programs that have brought artists of national and international renown to Mississauga. With this year’s auction, the AGM has invited artists who have previously exhibited at the gallery to create limited edition works specifically for this event, offering attendees an opportunity to celebrate the history of the gallery and, through their support, to ensure another vibrant 30 years of bringing exceptional contemporary art to Mississauga’s communities.” – Terry Jenkins-Bricel, AGM Board of Directors
The full list of artists donating works and limited edition prints will be available soon. Stay tuned!
