A Message from the Chair
Welcome to Art on the Block 2013, your AGA’s largest fundraising event of the year. This is our 15th year for Art on the Block and we are truly excited to have you join us this evening.
In a gallery filled with truly awesome people, entertainment, cocktails and gourmet bites, we appreciate how difficult it will be to remember why you chose to attend the social mixer of the season in the first place—the chance to own an incredible piece of art by a recognized Canadian artist. There are over 70 works of art, ranging from sculpture to painting to photography, along with unique art-inspired items to choose from.
With your ticket purchase, bids, and donations you will support your Art Gallery of Alberta, helping us create rewarding experiences—from exhibitions to education programs—for all who attend the Gallery.
An event like this cannot happen without the support and collaboration of many, many people. We are very grateful to all the artists, galleries, donors, sponsors, patrons, volunteers and AGA staff who make this event possible.
Thank you very much for your support and don’t forget to keep your eye on the prize!
