McMichael Autumn Art Sale

July 29, 2013

Every year the McMichael Volunteer Committee hosts an Autumn Art Sale at the prestigious McMichael gallery, renowned for collecting Canadian art.  The McMichael permanent collection consists of almost 6,000 artworks by Tom Thomson, the Group of Seven, their contemporaries, and First Nations, Métis, Inuit and other artists who have made a contribution to the development of Canadian art. I am THRILLED to announce that this year I was one of the 40 artists chosen out of over 240 submissions! There will be an opening gala on October 18th from 6-10pm, and the show will be open October 19-20th as well. This show is a great opportunity for artists to show and sell their work and is also the signature fundraising event for the McMichael Volunteer Committee. The McMichael, located in Vaughan, Ontario, houses thirteen exhibition galleries where floor-to-ceiling windows enable visitors to enjoy views of the densely wooded Humber River Valley. Beyond the galleries the McMichael provides 100 acres of forested land, from a ridgetop ‘wilderness garden,’ planted by the McMichaels to echo the northern forest beloved of the Group of Seven, to the heritage waterway important to Aboriginal peoples. Have a great day! julie
