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.

Heather Thomas was born in Nova Scotia. She studied at UBC, ECUAD and the Akademie fur Bildende Kunst in Salzburg. She has completed residencies in Banff (AB), Centrum(WA) and the Contemporary Artist’s Center (MA). Recent solo exhibitions are Mute Traces at the Point Gallery (2010), Saltspring, Wounded the Kelowna Art Gallery (2008), and The Physics of Power at the Nanaimo Art Gallery (2007). Thomas lives on Vancouver Island.

Thomas’ recent work is centred on notions of conflict and trauma. Her past interest in the irony of toxic balance led her to question the design relationship between objects in the natural world whose objective is to to regenerate life, and objects in the industrial and technological world whose objective is to take life. In this hypermodern world, where fear has created contempt for the cultures that define civilizations, she is interested in the role of the artist as witness.
