Bentwood Box Auction 2019

September 13, 2019

Lattimer Gallery is once again partnering with Indigenous artists from across BC to raise money for UNYA’s current programming, as well as contributing to making our planned Native Youth Centre a reality. These funds go to some of our most underfunded programs, ensuring that we are able to continue providing opportunities and support to Indigenous youth here in Metro Vancouver.

 

 

All of the work that goes into making the Bentwood Box Auction a success every year is donated: the cedar boxes are steam-bent and constructed by Métis/Cree artist James Michels; all of the work to put the exhibit together and the collected funds are donated by Lattimer Gallery; and all artwork is generously created and donated by the artists.

This annual charity auction supports some of our most underfunded programs, ensuring that we are able to continue providing opportunities and support to Indigenous youth.

The artwork can be viewed on Lattimer Gallery’s website, www.lattimergallery.com, beginning November 23, 2019. Bids will be accepted by email, phone, or in person in the gallery.

 

Bidding will conclude on December 7th, 2019, during the artists reception at the Museum of Vancouver. You can also make a personal donation through this annual fundraising event here
