The 11th Annual Art Gallery of Hamilton Art Sale takes place April 12 to 15, in support of Education and Programming and the AGH. An important local initiative, this signature event provides opportunities for emerging and established artists to develop their professional practice while making contemporary art available to the community.
With more than 240 pieces of original artwork by 83 regional artists, the curated AGH Art Sale features paintings, illustrations, printmaking, photography, ceramics, glass, mixed media, textiles and jewellery.
Serving a variety of price points and styles, art lovers will discover their next favorite piece, collectors will build upon their growing collection and budding enthusiasts will find the perfect work for their exciting first purchase. Purchase prices start at $100.
“The AGH Art Sale is a great opportunity for new collectors to spend time with artists and seasoned collectors, and to learn more about what’s happening with the artwork and the art scene in Hamilton. Now in its 11th year, there is tremendous amount of anticipation to see so many new works enter the market in one show.” – Jasmine Lazdins, Consultant, Art Rental, Sales and Services, Art Gallery of Hamilton
The AGH is thrilled to once again work with artist Raymond Girard, whose most recent installation, Hamilton, Unbuilt is a featured piece for the 2018 AGH Art Sale.
In 2015, The Art Gallery of Hamilton worked alongside Girard who built and installed an impressive 21 foot Lego Metropolis located at the newly built Ron Joyce Children’s Health Centre. This permanent installation was constructed using over 500,000 Lego pieces and is an inspirational example of how the RJCHC is dedicated to a holistic approach to healing.
