Join us at this important benefit event for the Contemporary Art Gallery. Your support allows us to continue our crucial role as the only free independent public art gallery dedicated exclusively to engaging audiences with the very best in contemporary art from Vancouver, Canada and abroad.
This truly remarkable evening will feature our much anticipated Art Auction, featuring the work of over thirty ‘must know’ emerging and well known Canadian and international artists. New to this year’s event is the inaugural ‘Anonymous Polaroid Project’. A series of polaroid photographs taken by specially invited public figures who have taken images reflecting their daily lives will be up for auction. Only after bidding will the identities of the photographers be revealed.
