2016 Autumn Art Sale Fundraiser

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” (Helen Keller)

Together, the McMichael Volunteer Committee (MVC), brought in another Record-Breaking Fundraiser.

During the weekend of October 21 to 23, 2016, over 2800 visitors admired the incredible artwork on display during McMichael Volunteer Committee’s 26th Annual Autumn Art Sale Fundraiser.  The highest number of artworks sold in 26 years, 242, went home with new investors and brought in over $132,000 in sales— the third highest sales since the Autumn Art Sale began in 1991 — with net fundraising proceeds in excess of $37,000.

The sale provided the opportunity for fifty of the finest contemporary Canadian artists and sculptors to showcase and sell their works at the McMichael. Visitors who attended the Gala Opening on the evening of Friday, October 21 enjoyed a cocktail reception while mingling among the artists and their artwork.

Congratulations to the 2016 Top Ten Painters and Top Sculptor who have been invited back to participate in the 2017 Autumn Art Sale.  The Top Artists were: Ryan A. Sobkovich (“Best-in-Show”),  Allan Beckley, Jay Bell Redbird, Roslyn Levin, Doris Pontieri , Shannon Reynolds, Lynne Schumacher, John Shea, Mike Smalley , John Werlich and Jennifer McKinnon (Sculptor).
