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.

Harry Stanbridge was born in Quesnel, BC, and currently lives and works in Victoria. He studied painting with Don Jarvis and Takao Tanabe at the Vancouver School of Art (now the Emily Carr College of Art + Design) from 1963 to 1968. After moving to Victoria, he taught art at Spectrum High School from 1978 to 2003 while maintaining a regular studio practice and exhibiting regularly throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.

Inspired by the West Coast style of Hard Edge painting, Stanbridge’s layered surfaces recall sublime emotions and have been described as “meditative devices or windows, through which the participating viewer can attain understanding” (Nicholas Tuele, former curator at AGGV). Stanbridge is an elected member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Art (RCA). His work hangs in prestigious Gallery collections in Canada and abroad, and he has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions nationally and internationally.

In 2007, Two Rivers Gallery hosted Communion, a two person exhibition by Harry Stanbridge and partner, Linda Stanbridge. Catalogue available.

Harry Stanbridge’s work is included in the Permanent Collec­tion of Two Rivers Gallery.
