Art Auction

Auction Preview: September 14 to 16

Last year's Art Auction coincided with our 40th Anniversary and also marked the public launch of our Live Art. Love SAAG. campaign. Our community broke records once again - raising $121,150 in support of arts and culture! We auctioned off framed prints from our limited edition 40th Anniversary Print Portfolio; attendees commemorated the evening in front of our first-ever photo wall; and we saw a record-breaking purchase when Allan Harding MacKay's Boreal Smoulder sold for $5250. Mark your calendars for our 25th annual Art Auction on September 16th, because you won't want to miss this annually sold-out event!

Amidst the bubbling champagne, handcrafted martinis, and swingin' jazz, enjoy perusing the eclectic and thought-provoking pieces donated from artists all over the world. Each year, artists who have exhibited at SAAG and regular donors from the Lethbridge arts community are approached to donate a piece from their collection. Furthermore, a tantalizing array of unique experiences crafted from the generous donations of local businesses and individuals will be up for bid. Don't miss this year's raffle featuring prints made by Calgary-based artist Brandon Hearty. There will only be a limited number of prints available, and if the past auctions are any indication, they will sell out in a flash!

Supporting the vision of our Live Art. Love SAAG. campaign, events like the Art Auction ensure we have the funds available to support our mandate and continue offering the quality programming for which we are known. With ambitious goals and hopes for the future, SAAG is thankful for the ongoing support of the artists, sponsors, and attendees involved in this fundraiser. We look forward to this year's incredible event and hope to see you there.

To participate via proxy bidding please stop by our Auction preview on September 14 to 16 and fill out an absentee bid sheet with our Visitor Services Coordinator.
