The AGSM's Annual Art Auction and Dinner

(Sponsored by Benny's Restaurant)
Murray Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC Showroom
Limited tickets available $80
On Thursday, May 4, 2017, the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba will be hosting another extraordinary art-filled evening with our annual Art Auction and Dinner. Last year, attendees and sponsors helped make our biggest annual fundraising event an incredible success. This year, we hope to entertain you with an Intergalactic Gala (May the Fourth be with you!). The gala will include live music, roving performances, a costume contest, interstellar photobooth, lively conversation, fine dining and, of course, the wonderful art created by artists in this region and from across the country - an evening sure to be out-of-this-world!
The Art Auction and Dinner is our most popular event of the year. All proceeds support the AGSM’s education and outreach, including the children’s scholarship fund. Annually, our art classes and workshops are attended by over 3,500 children, teens, and adults, helping them to discover art and all of the joy and empowerment of creating something with their own hands.
To purchase your tickets, call us today at 204-727-1036 or click visit us online here: https://agsm.ca/EVENTS This is sure to be a night you don't want to miss!
On the evening of the event only cash, credit, and cheques will be accepted.
***This event is a semi-formal occasion, however, space-themed costumes are recommended and encouraged! There will be a costume contest with one lucky winner receiving a gift valued at over $250!***
