Algoma University’s Visual Art Program Gala Fundraising Event

Algoma University’s Visual Art Program Gala Fundraising Event

Algoma University’s Visual Art Program is pleased to launch our first wine and cheese fundraising event Falling Into Art, on September 8, 2022, at the Sault Museum. All proceeds are going towards the Visual Arts program. Having the ability to pursue a fine arts degree at a university level locally helps in keeping the local arts and culture scene viable and thriving. By hosting this event, we hope to do our part in keeping with this goal and infusing some much-needed funding into the program. 

The evening will consist of a silent art auction, music, wine and apps. We have tables with charcuterie boards available by reservation or general admission with access to a grazing table. Please see below for admission purchasing options.

Donating artists include: Tom O’Flanagan, Annie King, Katie Huckson, Lucia Laford, Michael Burtch, Andrea Pinheiro, Daryl Wier, Isabelle Michaud, Desiree Watson, Amy Williams, Penny Gabor, Emma McLeod, Goldie Barzan, and Aryo Barzan. This is an excellent opportunity to add some local artwork to your collection or to begin building one!

We hope you will attend the event and bring friends. Should you be unable to attend but still wish to support our event, a financial contribution is greatly appreciated and a tax receipt will be issued by Algoma University.
