Fundraising Auction & Gala Event

Visions 2013: Artists in Wonderland
Fundraising Auction
& Gala Event
Saturday April 6, 2013 @ 7 pm
Tickets $30 each
Free
Artists’ Reception & Auction Preview: Friday April 5 @ 7 pm


Don’t be late! Mark the Date! Tickets are now available at the GPAG or from the Volunteer Committee. Join Alice and her creative crew in a magical dream world full of art, music and wonderful surprises. Hang onto your head – you may well find the Queen of Hearts directing her court or the Mad Hatter, March Hare and Doormouse sharing tea or be greeted by Alice herself as the evening becomes curioser and curioser…

Artists in Wonderland will be an entertaining evening and a great party. As always, there will be an exciting  array of items up for auction - art, antiques, gift certificates, collectables and more. Some very special items this year will include the chance to meet Alice in person for the lucky buyer of four passes to Disney World for a family of four or you can relive the acclaimed performance of the ballet, Alice, with signed pictures and poster from the National Ballet. Regional artists will be lending their talents to the cause, by submitting original artwork and by decorating teacups for the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Exciting donations are also coming from the many generous individuals and businesses in our community who support the gallery.

The annual Visions event is the Volunteer Committee’s main fundraiser and the source of vital resources that will allow the Gallery to continue providing top quality art programming for communities right across the Niagara Peninsula. Proceeds from this year’s auction will support our Educational programs for children and the work that we do to preserve and care for art in the permanent collection. Everybody is invited to attend the Artists' Reception and Auction Preview on Friday, April 5th when guests will have the opportunity to socialize with local artists, place advance silent bids and review the items that will be up for live auction during the Saturday evening gala. 

The Art Gallery and Volunteer Committee look forward to your continued support and attendance at this very important fundraising event. Many hands make light work and we are always happy to welcome new volunteers. If you have time to give or just need a little more information, please contact the  gallery at 905-945-3246 or
