Auction aids in art acquisition

Online event supports Shuswap District Arts Council projects

Acquire new art treasures for your home through Art in the Attic.

Art in the Attic is an online art auction hosted by the Shuswap District Arts Council. This year’s event features 75 items of previously-loved artwork.

In addition to original works, there are a few prints and packages of art materials.

One of the arts council’s roles is to ensure the community’s historically important works are collected and kept safe for future generations.

There are currently more than 100 works in the community art collection, representing the Shuswap’s shared story.

Proceeds of this auction go toward the protection and preservation of the collection. Long-term plans include renovations and additions to the Salmon Arm Arts Centre for a permanent display gallery and climate controlled storage for the works

Members have donated previously loved artwork for this auction, offering excellent original works by artists from the Shuswap area and beyond.

Shuswap District Arts Council was established in 1971. In addition to managing the Salmon Arm Arts Centre and art gallery, it offers community programming in visual and performing arts through its many programs.
