Event Catalogue
One Original Artwork valued at a minimum of $1,000. The average artwork in Raise is $2,400


How it works:


1. Buy your ticket here.


2. Wait for your Raise catalogue to arrive.


3. Open up your catalogue! Packed full of original artworks, all valued at $1,000 or more, created just for you by talented Canadian artists. One of these pieces is your new addition. Which one grabs your eye?


4. Arrive at our gallery on the night, we’ll greet you with a smile, a glass of wine and a paintbrush with a number on it. Keep it handy, you’ll need it!


5. Take some time to enjoy an exclusive exhibition of artworks for your eyes only. You’ll see all the pieces from the catalogue and have a chance to enjoy this exclusive one-night only display.


6. At 7.30PM our MC will draw the first number! Is it yours? Yes? Then you get first pick of the artworks on display to take home.


7.    But wait!


Did someone just take the artwork you wanted? Outbid them! Your paintbrush is now your bidding paddle, so get bidding! In increments of $100 you can RAISE the bid and take home the piece you were really coveting.


8. Numbers are picked and bids taken, until everyone has an original painting to take home


Every guest is guaranteed one original artwork at the end of the night.


Your ticket includes entry for two people, light snacks, one catalogue and one original artwork.


With music, an MC, live painting demonstration and interactive painting by numbers, you’re guaranteed a night that raises the bar, as well as vital funding for the Federation of Canadian Artists, Canada’s largest member driven Non-profit Arts Organization.
