2015 marks the 17th year for Art on the Block, the Art Gallery of Alberta’s largest fundraising event. Our must-attend event, Art on the Block is a fantastic evening supporting the Art Gallery as you battle over 100 auction items worth fighting for.
This year, we invite you to make new friends—and new enemies—as you socialize, enjoy cocktails and mercilessly outbid your competitors on works by recognized Canadian artists, as well as art-inspired items donated by local artisans and businesses. Proceeds from tickets, bids and donations support your AGA’s art education programs, bringing a deeper, more engaging art experience to the community.
Art on the Block is supported by the collaboration of many people. We are very grateful to all of the artists, galleries, donors, sponsors, patrons, businesses, volunteers and AGA staff who make this event possible.
We can’t wait to see you in action at the auction block! We thank you deeply for supporting of the Art Gallery of Alberta.
Now go out there and show no mercy in the name of art. Going once, going twice…
