About the Autumn Art Sale
The McMichael Volunteer Committee’s annual signature fundraiser, the AUTUMN ART SALE, is recognized as one of the most prestigious events displaying original works from some of Canada’s most talented artists. There is no better setting than the gallery’s stunning Grand Hall, surrounded by 100 acres of beautiful conservation land, to showcase unique one-of-a-kind works. Over the course of three days, art will be on view and available for purchase from 49 juried artists.
The quality and variety of works on sale will please the taste and budget of seasoned art buyers as well as those beginning to build a collection. Artists working in acrylic, oil, watercolour, wax, mixed media, pen & ink, sumi-e, stone, wood, glass, steel, iron and paper will be on view. This is your opportunity to invest in a beautiful piece of original Canadian art that will provide a lifetime of enjoyment.
