"1 Off the Wall" is a unique and exclusive by-invitation-only cocktail function and auction of original artworks that have been donated to the Smith Foundation by some of the cities most noteable collectors! The evening is an opportunity to bid on works that are not available elsewhere on the market. The works range in value from $5,000 to $25,000 and could be yours! A catalogue of available works will be published in late September.
The Gordon and Marion Smith Foundation for Young Artists was established to enhance art education in our community through the support of Artists for Kids and its art education programs, and, more recently, the Gordon Smith Gallery of Canadian Art which holds one of the finest collections of contemporary Canadian Art in the country. Through these programs and in this magnificent new facility, students, teachers and artists work together and exchange stories, skills and share the meaning and spirit of art in its many forms.
