Thanks to everyone who visited the McMichael Canadian Art Collection for our 23rd Annual Autumn Art Sale 2013. Fifty talented Canadian artists and sculptors descended on the McMichael for the weekend and sold over 170 works of art. Our annual Fundraiser was a huge success, selling almost $100,000 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 sculptor Paul Brunelle, who himself sold almost $14,000 worth of his incredible fired clay sculptures. Our Top 10 artists for 2013 were: Mark Berens, Doris Pontieri, Floyd Elzinga, Jeremy Browne, Elva Hook, Jack Zhou, Ian Bodnaryk, Jason Enzi, Michele Van Maurik, and Micheal Zarowsky. Congratulations to them and all the artists who participated – it was a great success!
Funds raised help support children’s education programs, and special exhibitions at the McMichael.
Stay tuned for information on next year’s sale, October 24-26, 2014. The application deadline will be May 31, 2014. If you would like to be added to the application notification list, click here.
