Event description

Description


The Art Gallery of Mississauga Benefit Art Auction showcases contemporary Canadian works of art from emerging and established artists, many of whom have exhibited at the AGM and other major public galleries, all in support of our FIRST NEW NEXT mandate for exhibitions, programming, collection and institutional growth. All proceeds of the Benefit Art Auction will make it possible for the AGM to expand and connect our FREE community-engaged programmes with children and youth in Mississauga.

With a commitment to supporting historically underrepresented artists, and offering inclusive, dynamic public programs free to all, your support will help inspire and foster the next generation of engaged and creative citizens through exposure to and appreciation of the arts. As Mississauga’s only public gallery, the AGM needs your support to make this happen!

SQUARE ONE is once again the Platinum Sponsor for the upcoming Art Gallery of Mississauga Benefit Art Auction, and for the first time, will also host the signature art event. The Auction will take place in the Grand Rotunda, near Entrance 3 on Thursday April 26, 2018 and will feature hors d’hoeuvres, spectacular décor, and live entertainment to set the stage for what promises to be the biggest AGM Auction ever.

Over forty stunning works of fine art from emerging and established artists of local and national renown will be available during the live auction, with works by:

Faisal Anwar, Karel Appel, Shuvinai Ashoona, Gil Caldwell, Robert Davidovitz, Frances Ferdinands, Libby Hague, Carl (J.C) Heywood, Diana Hillman, Robin Hollingdrake, Syed Iqbal, Shireen Kamran, HyunRyoung Kim, Gavin Lynch, Asma Mahmood, Panchal Mansaram, Norval Morrisseau, Lisa Myers, Juan Ortiz-Apuy, Eileen Oswald, Charles Pachter, Kurt Pammer, Ed Pien, Howard Podeswa, Tazeen Qayyum, Amin Rehman, Doreen Renner, Don Russell, Reeta Saeed, Rena Sava, Anjum Siddiqui, Sumaira Tazeen Shiekh, Jessica Thalmann, Tamara Thompson, Youngo Verma, Cristine Yunyk, Shellie Zhang and more!
