The Southern Alberta Art Gallery’s Art Frenzy, the auction that supports art, is in a box this year.
Due to COVID-19 limitations, you still bid on great art – from home.
Bidding begins on Nov. 13 and goes into overdrive the final night on Nov. 21 when SAAG goes live for one hour at the Art Frenzy virtual gala. Bid safe.
Art Frenzy tickets and party boxes can be purchased in packs of two, four or eight for you to take home to enjoy with your guests.
With your ticket purchase you will receive an Art Frenzy party box filled with things like a charcuterie board and appetizers from LA Chefs, drinks from Andrew Hilton, a limited edition print by illustrator Cristian Iacob, access to bidding and the virtual gala, and more.
SAAG’s annual fundraising event welcomes young patrons, emerging artists, and guests for an evening of bidding, out bidding, cocktails and music. This year it will be virtual, while bidding will be opened up across Canada. Guests can select the complementary ticketing option on the SAAG auction platform website https://givergy.ca/artfrenzy/?controller=tickets.
There are 44 artworks and 14 unique gift packages to bid on. This event has grown, over the course of 28 years, into an unparallelled model of philanthropic spirit, generating record funds in support of SAAG’s mandate to foster the work of contemporary artists who challenge boundaries, encourage broad public engagement, and promote awareness and exploration of artistic expression.
