The Art Gallery of Mississauga Benefit Art Auction showcases contemporary Canadian works of art from emerging and established artists, all in support of our FIRST NEW NEXT mandate for exhibitions, programming, collection and institutional growth. All proceeds of the Benefit Art Auction will make it possible for the AGM to expand and connect our FREE community-engaged programmes with children and youth in Mississauga.

With a commitment to supporting historically underrepresented artists, and offering inclusive, dynamic public programs free to all, your support will help inspire and foster the next generation of engaged and creative citizens through exposure to and appreciation of the arts. As Mississauga's only public gallery, the AGM, needs your support to make this happen!

Square One is once again the Platinum Sponsor for the upcoming Art Gallery of Mississauga Benefit Art Auction, and for the first time, will also host the signature art event. The Auction will take place in the Grand Rotunda, near Entrance 3 on Thursday April 26, 2018 and will feature hors d’hoeuvres, spectacular décor, and live entertainment to set the stage for what promises to be the biggest AGM Auction ever.

The AGM is proud to announce that Platinum Sponsor will host the signature art event at the Shopping Centre. The Auction will take place in the Grand Rotunda near Entrance 3. With its large circular footprint, glass walls and a 60 foot ceiling, The Grand Rotunda is an exquisite architectural backdrop for SQUARE ONE's South Expansion. This elegant event will feature hors d'hoeuvres, spectacular décor, and live entertainment to set the stage for what promises to be the biggest AGM Auction ever!
