ART Auction – Sunday Sept 26

ART Auction

Sunday, September 26, 2010    2-4pm

Join us for a very special event in the Historic Gardens… an ART Auction held in the midst of these beautiful gardens!

Sailing Ships in Halifax Harbour by Dusan Kadlec

We are pleased to present donated collections that consist of more than 45 items, mostly original oil and watercolour paintings and quality prints by several well known Nova Scotia and international artists, as well as work by local artists and artwork purchased at past “Paint the Town” events in Annapolis Royal. A consigned Maud Lewis original, a painted relief wood carving and one sculpted work are also included, as well as some needlework, a hand tailored gents Acadian costume and a handcrafted fishing rod.

“Oxen in Winter” by Maud Lewis
Limited Edition Print Collection & Book by Norval Morriseau

Artwork may be viewed through our Virtual Art Gallery.

This is a catalogue auction – the catalogue will be available for download on this site by September 15.

While we are excited about the prospect of having this event in the atmosphere of the Historic Gardens, if the weather is poor the ART Auction will be held at the Annapolis Legion.

Proceeds from the ART Auction will go to the future care and development of the Historic Gardens.

For further information, please call 532-7018 or email admin@historicgardens.com
