45 1/2th "Annual" Art Auction at the Penticton Art Gallery

Event Dates:
  • Sun November 26, 2023 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Event Cost: Free

As some of you may know, the 46th annual Art auction was recently postponed. However, We didn’t want to completely do away with the auction as it is such an anticipated and enjoyed event. So the staff and board put their heads together and decided that we would have a “half auction!” – which is like a regular auction except it’s a little smaller, a little more low-key, and a little later in the year. Our 45 1/2th “annual” auction will be taking place on November 26th from 1-4pm at the Gallery. It is a free event and there will be snacks and drinks and good company. Also if you’re not able to make the live auction- no worries, all of the auction items are up online now and are open to be bid on!

Online bids will end at midnight on the 25th of November—if you can’t make the auction in person, please take advantage of the absentee bid feature and leave your maximum bid. A member of the Gallery will bid on your behalf at the live event. If there are no additional bids at the live event, the highest current active bid will win.

We hope to see you at our 45 1/2th “Annual” Auction. It may not be as big as our usual auctions, but it will be just as fun! And if you’re really down in the dumps about the 46th Annual Art Auction being cancelled, don’t be! As it is not technically cancelled, but merely postponed until next year. The 46th annual art auction will be taking place June 22nd, 2024. So keep your eyes peeled for more information about that as we get closer.
