Black and Gold Art Auction Now Online!


Have you had a look at the art available at this year’s Black and Gold Gala?  It’s a beautiful collection of diverse works from artists across Canada and right here in Kitchener-Waterloo.

We are grateful for the generosity of so many artists.

Like last year, we are offering the works through an online auction in advance of the Gala. You can start bidding on your favourites today or use the “buy now” feature if you just can’t wait until the 20th!

The art auction proceeds support the 100+ programs and exhibitions that happen every year at KWAG.

There are still a few tickets left for this year’s event and we would love to see you there!
