The Art Gallery of Peterborough (AGP) is thrilled to announce the return of the It’s All About ART Online Auction. Everyone is invited to join the AGP and their sponsors to raise funds for programs which bring inspiring and insightful contemporary art and education to our community. This is a great opportunity for individuals to build their collection with original fine artwork while supporting living artists. 

Key Dates:

  • Friday, November 5: Online auction goes LIVE
  • Saturday, November 20: All auction items close at 9 p.m.

Since being founded by a group of dedicated volunteers in 1974, the AGP has been sustained by the contributions of members and donors alike. Communities need art, now more than ever. Help AGP continue to provide ground-breaking exhibitions, engaging programs, and invaluable educational opportunities accessible to everyone.

A selection of artwork on offer in this year’s It’s All About ART auction is available to preview at: agp.on.ca/events-listing-page/its-all-about-art/ with more work being added weekly. A Preview Exhibition, opening on Thursday, October 21, offers everyone a chance to see the work, confirm their favourites, and prepare to place a bid as the auction opens on November 5.  

The Art Gallery of Peterborough is open to the public by appointment Thursday to Sunday each week between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. by appointment. Visitors are invited to call the Gallery at 705-743-9179 to reserve their time. Full booking details are available at: agp.on.ca/about/hours-admission/.

Stay tuned, and keep up to date with all things AGP:
