The 2018 annual YKACL Art Auction begins today! (Nov. 14-Dec. 7)
November 14, 2018
MONA THRASHER, GRAEME SHAW AND LOUIE NIGIYOK are just a few of the renowned artists whose prints, photographs and original paintings go on the virtual auction block next week!
The third annual YKACL Online Art Auction accepts bids on close to 50 pieces from 12 noon on Wednesday, Nov. 14, until 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 7.
This diverse collection of artwork from across the North and around the world, donated to the Association for this annual fundraiser, also features a dynamic selection of Cape Dorset prints, vintage NWT posters, and images from Israel, Egypt and throughout southern Canada.
View the auction items on display at Centre Square Mall from Nov. 21 – Dec. 7 (near the library elevator).
Funds raised will support our many programs, including the YKACL Youth Groups, Youth Employment Services, and Supported Living Services.
“This is a great selection of fine art and Northern memorabilia. It made me really nostalgic looking through this collection of art works, many by artists who are no longer with us. The auction is a great opportunity to find a Northern treasure and support an amazing organization that contributes so much to our community,” said Lisa Seagrave, owner of The Gallery of the Midnight Sun.
