Thanks to everyone who visited the McMichael Canadian Art Collection for our 22nd Annual Autumn Art Sale 2012. Fifty talented Canadian artists and sculptors descended on the McMichael for the weekend and sold over 160 works of art. Our annual Fundraiser was a huge success, selling over $90,000 worth of great art, and raising $30,000 for volunteer initiatives at the McMichael. It was wonderful to see so many talented emerging artists.
This year’s Top Artist was Doris Pontieri, and Top Sculptor was Bev Stewart. The Top Ten was rounded out by Peter Rotter, Larry Deacon, Joe Sampson, Floyd Elzinga, Mark Berens, Lynda Cunningham, Lloyd Wilson, Jamie Maclean, and Michele Van Maurik.
Funds raised help support children’s education programs, our popular Sunday Concert Series, and special exhibitions at the McMichael.
Stay tuned for information on next year’s sale, October 18-20, 2013. The application deadline will be May 31, 2013. If you would like to be added to the application notification list, click here.
