The Autumn Artisan Market is a fundraiser planned and run by the McMichael Volunteer Committee. The inception of this fundraiser came about from COVID restrictions on large social events. While this means that we will have to wait a little longer to celebrate our Artists in the McMichael Gallery’s Grand Hall in the traditional way at our signature Autumn Art Sale, it does not mean that we don’t get to celebrate the Artists and the Gallery Online!
The Autumn Artisan Market is an online fundraiser that will take place October 15 to 31, 2021. The Market will include fine art, sculptures and fine art photography. This Market is a fundraiser that helps us support the McMichael Canadian Art Collection’s exhibitions and children’s programs, as well as participating artists.
CALL FOR ARTISTS: April 1 to May 31, 2021
ONLINE ART SALE: October 15 to 31, 2021
2021 Autumn Art Sale
During these unprecedented times, there is much uncertainty with respect to public events taking place in Autumn as we wait for the vaccines for COVID 19 to be rolled out and available to everyone. This uncertainty has led us to the decision to defer our 30th Anniversary Autumn Art Sale Fundraiser to Autumn of 2022. While this means that we will have to wait a little longer to celebrate our Artists in the McMichael’s Canadian Art Gallery’s Grand Hall, we are planning to have an Online Autumn Artisan Market Fundraiser to support Artists as well as the McMichael Canadian Art Gallery.
The Call to Artists for the Online Autumn Artisan Market Fundraiser will be posted on April 1st and will be open until May 31st. Please follow us on social media for updates or check back on our website starting April 1st 2021 to get information on the application process as well as the link to the application.
