THANK YOU to everyone who attended the 2017 event! Your support means we can continue to be a hub for arts & culture in Prince George! Stay tuned for the date of the 2018 auction.


Proceeds from this event help support many of the services the Gallery delivers in Prince George, including Art Heals (Hospital outreach program) and MakerLab Youth Immersion (program for at-risk teens).

Your ticket includes hors d’oevres and a glass of wine or beer. Witness cut-throat bidding wars as local collectors duel for a piece of fine art before the bang of the auctioneer’s gavel announces the winner! There will also be a silent auction featuring the work of local artisans. We offer something for all tastes and budgets!

Tickets are $25 each, or 2 for $40. They are available at the gallery, by phone (250-614-7800) or online:

 

If you can't attend in person, fill out our Absentee Bid Form online or by phone 250-614-7800.

Frances Gobbi is an artist and teacher living in Prince George. She has a BFA in Visual Arts from UVic and has completed residencies at the Toni Onley Artist Proj­ect (Island Mountain Arts, Wells, BC under mentors Harold Klunder and Ciara Philips), and READ with ART at Ron Brent School and most recently the Neighbourhood Time Exchange (1119 3rd Ave, Prince George, Living Labs, ECUAD, curated by Justin Langlois).

Gobbi has a long history with Two Rivers Gallery. She has been teaching classes at the Gallery since 2010. In 2016, she had an exhibition in the Rustad Galleria entitled Wonderland, with fellow artist, Maja Swannie Jacob. She was part of two group shows – North: an Exhibition for the Canada Winter Games and Voice.

Notions regarding childhood play, religion & nature are often central to her work. “My explorations with paint on paper have guided me as I have looked internally for answers to questions. For me they are a metaphor for these very personal dialogues.”
