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:

Perry Melanka was born in Edmonton in 1959.

“My motivation is an art story about how I feel about people I know and respect, and the greatness of the earth we live on. I have seen the Group of Seven paintings in the Vancouver Art Gallery. Their colours burned a spot in my mind. I was in awe of the subject matter, colour and size. I could never own one so I have to paint my own. I want people to look at my art and want to go visit the great outdoors, shake the hand of the people I paint or inspire the viewer to tell their story.

My preference is oils. I love vibrant colour.

It is impossible to paint the awesomeness I feel when standing on the top of a mountain and looking over other mountain tops in the strong wind and the biting cold. Or the hidden lake that has every bug not known to mankind trying to bite you. You get a glimpse of being there through me.

I will never forget many places I have been, like one in my past, picking wild raspberries with my Grandma. With Grandma telling me to wait to eat them till we get home and have them with cream and sugar. Travelling to the place I have seen is like picking the raspberries. Painting them is like the cream and sugar.”
