In Art Auction, DVSA News

Artists, join us April 10–16th for our 52nd edition of the DVSA Annual Art Auction. We’ll be introducing an all-new look and a greatly enhanced online auction platform – plus we’re bringing back the Live Auction night!

Between February 6 and March 8, 2023 we’ll be accepting original art submissions at the school in all mediums – paintings, pastels, drawings, lino/etching/woodblock prints, photography, sculpture, pottery, glass, fibre art and jewellery. Please consider showing your support by submitting artwork to what is our most important fundraising event of the year, enabling us to continue fulfilling our mission of offering high quality and accessible visual art programming for the Hamilton/Burlington region.

All information about submitting artwork, including contracts and submission guidelines, is included in our Artist Submission Package (see links above). Submitted pieces may be a full donation or you may choose to have 25% or 50% of the selling price returned to you and receive a tax receipt for the amount donated to the school (with a minimum value of $20 per item). Plus, your work will receive exposure to thousands of art lovers and collectors from across the Hamilton region, Southwestern Ontario, Canada and now around the world – all who bid online and, where possible, visit the school to see the artwork over the course of the week.

It is impossible for non-profit organizations to mount such ambitious fundraising events as the Art Auction without a strong base of support and the generosity of our regional artists. Thank you in advance for your support of this event.
