Guelph Arts Council Collector's Dilemma Auction
Guelph Arts Council presents Collector’s Dilemma, a fun socially distant auction of fine art donated by local collectors.
Like many artists and arts organizations, GAC has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We were unable to hold our major annual fundraising event, Collector's Dilemma, at the River Run Centre this year. Enter "32auctions" to the rescue!
Thanks to the generosity of local art collectors - who’ve run out of wall space or are making room for new pieces – an amazing collection of quality artwork, in a range of media, styles, sizes, and values, is available.
Check out GAC's Collector's Dilemma online auction and augment your art collection with new-to-you treasures at incredible prices all the while supporting the GAC through challenging times as we jointly create a vibrant City!
