The 2021 Autumn Artisan Market Fundraiser Success Story
During a time where showcase and sales opportunities for artists had halted due to the pandemic, the McMichael Volunteer Committee (MVC) was able to move their signature Autumn Art Sale to an online platform, the Autumn Artisan Market, and create a sense of enthusiasm for art that has been woven into the MVC’s prestigious annual art sale for the past 30 years.
Showcasing 95 participating artists, the first online iteration of the Autumn Art Sale Fundraiser created income and exposure for independent artists as well as raised over $32,000 for the McMichael Canadian Art Collection during a much needed time.
Congratulations to Brigitte Granton, top seller of the online sale. She has been invited back to participate in the next Autumn Art Sale.
The McMichael Volunteer Committee is grateful to all the artists that participated in the online sale. Without their beautiful art, this event would not have been possible.
