ART + FARE 3

September 23, 2017

On September 23rd , The Union Club hosted Art + Fare3, a fabulous fundraiser for the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria featuring art, music, hors d’oeuvres, dancing, and a silent auction.

In addition to putting the “fun” in fundraising, Art+Fare3 raised $32,189 for the AGGV’s Children and Family Programs and the conservation and preservation of its collection.

We are so grateful for the support of the participating art galleries, sponsors, patrons, silent auction donors, attendees, Club Management and Staff, and, of course, the Art+Fare3 Organizing Committee whose hard work made the event a major success.

THE AUCTION

What a fantastic night!


On March 9th, the Club hosted "The Auction" in support of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.  It was a fun evening with over 115 Members and art lovers attending.  Club Member, Alison Ross, owner of Kilshaw’s Auctioneers, presided over sale of 46 lots, entertaining the guests during the introductions and bidding on every lot.  

More than $15,500 was raised for the Art Gallery.  Brilliantly done Alison!  The funds will help support making the Art Gallery’s extensive collection more available online to our community.  

 
Christina Johnson- Dean, author of The Life and Art of Edythe Hembroff-Schleicher, was on hand to autograph copies of her book, as well as share with the audience many delightful anecdotes about Edythe in Victoria and her connection to Emily Carr.
