The Art Gallery of Peterborough is honoured to invite our members and community to attend our annual fundraiser it’s all about ART – this year with a new twist. We’re celebrating our 40th anniversary year, and we thought it was time for a change…no mystery art here! We’re pleased to reveal the artists supporting this year’s fundraising initiative to raise $30,000 for AGP programs.

Never before has there been such a diversity of artists! This is an exciting opportunity to build your art collection. Rising stars and emerging artists from across the region and Toronto’s art scene together with the newest works by familiar favourites make for an exceptional offering in our Live and Silent Auctions.

We also have an exclusive selection of “Artful Things”—items and services donated by local professionals and businesses. Find something for yourself, or get a special gift in time for the holidays. Fantastic food, specialty drink, and the buzz of art lovers: this will be an evening to remember! Tickets can be purchased over the phone or at the gallery.

The Art Gallery of Peterborough’s main gallery was recently closed for improvements. We’ll be fully open and ready to go for this fundraiser which will be followed up with new exhibitions opening in November. The AGP is working closely with the City of Peterborough to maintain our unique status as a public institution and are in the midst of developing a plan for more facility improvements scheduled in 2015.

The Art Gallery of Peterborough is located at 250 Crescent Street. The AGP offers free admission, barrier-free access, and a Gallery Shop. Parking is available in the Del Crary lot.

Public hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 11 am to 5 pm.   For more information please call 705 743 9179 and visit
