Canvas Canada exhibit “i”: Going ONCE… Going TWICE… Sold to… And the artist is…

    Ukrainian Canadian Art Foundation Programming Committee.

    The Alberta Council for the Ukrainian Arts (ACUA) in partnership with the Ukrainian Canadian Art Foundation (UCAF)/KUMF Gallery (Toronto) are thrilled to announce that “Canvas Canada – Exhibit “i” raised over $25,000.

    Thank you bidders for going beyond our expectations and making this such a successful auction.

    Exhibit “i” featured 157 works of Ukrainian and Canadian artists from across the country. Each piece is an original work and was created specifically for Exhibit “i” on a 10 x 10 canvas and all exhibited anonymously. The identity of the artist appears on the back of the artwork.

    The Auction with a “twist” went live on Waddington’s online auction platform on October 21st and ran through to October 31st.
