About Auction Night
Friday, June 3
This year’s Art Auction celebrates the 100th anniversary of The Jack Pine, a beloved oil painting by Canadian artist Tom Thomson that has become an iconic representation of the Canadian landscape. Thomson was an important influence on the Group of Seven and together they ignited a passion in Canadian artists that still resonates today. At 6:30pm the night begins with a catered cocktail reception accompanied by a jazz trio while you preview the fabulous artwork on offer. The live auction starts at 8:00pm and the Silent Auction and 99 Pieces of Art on the Wall sale close at approximately 9:45 pm when guests are treated to coffee, dessert, and a pianist to complete the evening.
