As the Visual Arts Centre’s McClure Gallery has lost important revenue due to the pandemic and because we have to continue to implement costly sanitary measures, the Centre is in a difficult financial situation. To help us weather this storm and to support our community of teachers and artists who have recently exhibited at the McClure Gallery, we are launching an online auction this fall!
30 artists have generously offered their wonderful works! As of today, you can see our collection from the comfort of your own home. Check out the virtual showroom and get ready to bid when the auction starts on October 19th at 6:00 am. 50% of the amount received will be paid to the artist. The remaining amount collected will help us continue to finance necessary covid-19 sanitary measures in the VAC building.
Participating artists: Andrea Williamson, Caroline Boileau, Corina Kennedy, Elaine Despins, Elisabeth Galante, Erik Nieminen, Eva Lapka, Helena Martin Franco, Jessica Houston, Jessica Sallay-Carrington, Justine Skahan, Kathryn Bemrose, Kay Aubanel, Laura Millard, Leona Heilling, Libby Hague, Lorna Mulligan, Marianne Pon-Layus, Marie-Claude Bouthillier, Marie-Ève Martel, Marion Wagschal, Matt Shane, Mérida Anderson, Mylène Boisvert, Newsha Hamidi, Nika Fontaine, Saba Heravi, Sarah Rooney, Stella Pace, Theresa Passarello.
If you would like to help out but cannot commit to bidding on artwork, we are also accepting donations. Please donate here.
Thank you so much for your support!
Natasha Reid, Executive Director
