Light up the Night | Call for Donations for 20187 Fundraiser

Every year, Art Gallery of St Albert (AGSA) holds a fundraiser to raise much needed funds to support programming and exhibitions at the Gallery – 2018 will mark the Gallery’s 28th annual fundraiser.

Funds raised during this event will sustain our exceptional services to the community, including free admission to the gallery, and low fees for all of our community and studio art programs.

On Saturday, February 24, 2018, Light up the Night will bring art lovers, collectors, and artists together for an evening of fine art, hands-on art-making fun, great food, live music and fundraising.

We invite artists to show their generosity by supporting AGSA with a donation that will be auctioned at the event.

We gratefully accept submissions of two and three-dimensional artwork, functional and decorative ceramics, jewelry, textiles, and other art objects. Please note that your work does not need to be inspired by the theme of the event. We endeavor to offer guests a variety of sizes and styles, and will curate a selection accordingly.

Criteria:

  • Wall mounted artworks can be any dimension up to 3ft x 3ft (including frame if applicable)
  • Free-standing, three dimensional artworks are also accepted
  • Artworks will be ‘display ready’ (two-dimensional works will be appropriately matted, framed, with hanging device; unframed canvases should have finished edges; three dimensional works will be stable and free-standing)
  • Artworks less than $950 will be considered
  • Items selected for the silent auction will have a reserve price equal to a quarter of their retail price
  • All entries will be reviewed by the Gallery committee. Committee decisions are final
