Midsummer's Eve of the Arts
Join the VPAG as we celebrate the 34th year of Midsummer’s Eve of the Arts. This year, we have made the decision to transition our annual fundraiser to an online platform to protect the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and supporters.
Although this year has introduced some changes, we will be delivering another fantastic event with a variety of great artworks for sale!
Enjoy a vibrant evening of art and celebration as we look towards the bright future of the VPAG and art in Greater Vernon. Funds raised during the live auction and silent auctions provide important support to the Gallery throughout the year.
We invite you to visit the Gallery for the MEA Art Auction Preview June 25th-July 14th to see the spectacular pieces we have available this year!
How will this years event look?
This year's silent auction will open July 1st, and will remain open for bids until Wednesday July 16th @ 11:59pm
The live auction will feature 9 items and will take place during the event from 7pm - 9pm on Wednesday July 15, 2020.
Bidding on these items is only available during the event! So be sure to purchase your tickets for a chance to take home one of these fantastic pieces!
Guests will participate by watching through an online platform where they will view the auction items, listen to live music, bid on live paintings and enjoy more engaging content!
This year, through the platform Trellis, guests will be able to place their bids live!
Order a meal with your ticket from two local caterers! Watch the show, participate in the auction while enjoying a delicious dinner and a glass of wine from O'Rourke Peak Cellars.
