We will be offering at Auction a wide selection of contemporary Canadian artists work, presenting an opportunity to add to your collection with work being offered at many price levels, and to support this valuable addition to the culture richness that is the fabric of Calgary.
The evening will be a unique opportunity to obtain outstanding works of art from a truly impressive roster of internationally and nationally recognized artists, and we hope you get a chance to meet them personally and to enjoy a night of artistically infused celebrations.
The funds we generate from the art auction will help us begin construction of the Art Pavilion, the first, and most important, step towards the completion of the kiyooka ohe arts centre + sculpture park as a world-class, interactive visual arts institution and creative laboratory dedicated to the research, education, promotion and exhibition of the best in Canadian and international contemporary art for all communities.
To establish the Centre, Katie and Harry donated their 20-acres Springbank property, their art collection, library/archives, personal works, and a generous endowment fund. Their motivation was simple and humble: to give back to the community by preserving their land and a unique ecosystem intact, by promoting the local cultural identity through increased participation in Calgary vibrant arts scene, and by contributing to the cultural enrichment and community pride of the city.
We would be honoured to have you join us April 7th, at Hotel Arts.
