Black and Gold is the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery’s biggest fundraising event of the year.

Did you know that the Gallery raises 50% of its operating budget through fundraising, individual donors, earned income and sponsorship?  This event contributes $55 000 a year to exhibitions, education and public programming.

We are thrilled to welcome CIBC Private Wealth Management and CIBC Wood Gundy – Allan Bush as title sponsors of this year’s event.

“CIBC Private Wealth Management is very pleased to support Black & Gold and the incredible programming and exhibitions of the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery. We believe that our region benefits immensely from the Gallery and that art is vital to a vibrant community,” said Allan Bush, First Vice President & Investment Advisor with CIBC Wood Gundy.

The Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery (KWAG) is Waterloo Region’s oldest and largest public art gallery. Our mission is connecting people and ideas through art; we achieve this through first-rate exhibitions by national and international artists and by making art accessible for all ages and all segments of society. Thanks to generous corporate support from Sun Life Financial, admission to the Gallery is free.

KWAG is a registered charity (#107579674RR0001) and not-for-profit organization that has been serving the community for sixty years.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2017 event!
