We wish to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you to everyone for their generous support of the Contemporary Art Gallery’s 40th Anniversary Gala Dinner and Auction this past Saturday night at the new Rosewood Hotel Georgia.

This was the 23rd edition of the event and in our 40th year we are exceptionally grateful for the overwhelming support from members, friends, supporters and artists, locally, nationally and internationally.  We had forty nine exceptional works this year and the nod to our founding year of 1971 created a fun evening that raised an amount in excess of $230,000 (the most the CAG has ever raised at any fundraising event to date) THANK YOU!

It was a fantastic evening full of great artwork, fabulously dressed guests, a blasting birthday guitar solo by artist Kevin Schmidt and birthday cake delivery and dance routine by sequin bedazzled artist Germaine Koh and the roller derby girls, the Faster Pussycats. Each lucky guest also received a beautiful handmade sculpture by artist Natalie Purchswitz as their take home gift. The evening directly supports the programme at the Contemporary Art Gallery as we grow in scope and ambition, and allows us to continue our crucial role, since 1971, as the longest standing free public art gallery dedicated exclusively to presenting contemporary visual art in Vancouver.

The CAG is honoured to continue this role and with Nigel Prince, our new Executive Director, we look forward to an expansion and diversification in our programming, striving to introduce new audiences, increasing accessibility and supporting visitors in their interaction with and interpretation of contemporary art.  With this unequivocally successful evening we can proudly move forward in presenting the very best in contemporary visual art from Vancouver, Canada and abroad.

Thank you again to the artists, guests, members, volunteers Board and staff who made this special evening a memorable and successful one. We can’t wait to see you next year at further events and benefits for the CAG.
