The 2022 WKC Art Auction is Live!

Dear Friends and Supporters,

We are excited to announce that the Annual WKC Art Auction is live!

Since 1975 the West Kortright Centre has provided world class music, art and a place for community. With a focus on bringing in accomplished performers, artists and instructors at an affordable cost to the general public we have created experiences and joyful memories for generations. 

The relevance of what we do has become more evident after the COVID-19 pandemic. While the world around us continues to change – the importance of creating community and bringing people together with art is more true than ever. That is why we are so excited to celebrate everything we stand for with this Art Auction. Friends and artists have generously donated their work to raise funds for the West Kortright Centre. We would not be the institution we are today without support from artists and therefore we are splitting the proceeds from the sold pieces with 25% going to the artist and 75% to the West Kortright Centre. Some contributors have decided to donate the full amount of the sales to WKC. The money we raise for the Centre will be spent on general support, programming and also help with upkeep and improvements to our small gallery. 

Your support will help the West Kortright Centre continue to be a place where people can experience high quality performances, learn new skills and spend time with friends and the community.

This year’s auction includes work from:

Alan Herman, Annie Hayes, Bobbi Goldman, Caitlyn Davey, Cheryl Kass, David Sundberg, Elena Herzog, Helen Quinn, Jeanette Platania-Harper, Jehed Diamond, Kamilla Talbot, Karin Bremer, Kevin Larmon, Kirsten Hassenfeld, Lanny Harrison, Lee Boroson, Leland Nelson-Powley, Leonard Dufresne, Marilynn Gelfman Karp, Richard Kathmann, Steve Clorfeine, Temma Bell, Trevor Wilson

How it works

Click on the link below to see the artworks available. You will have to create a user or login to bid on any given work. The Auction is live now and the final bids should be received by Friday, October 6 at 5PM.

Once the Auction has ended the winners will be notified and after payment has been submitted, the artist will ship the work to you directly from their studio. Shipping costs will be determined after the auction has closed and will be based on the winner’s location.

If you would like to give a donation to the West Kortright Centre but can’t commit to bidding on an artwork you can do it here.

Take a look at the Auction and put in your bid here.

Thank you for your support!
