Over the Top Friday Night: Free entry, early bidding, no cupcakes.
The Friday night opening of MAWA's Over the Top Art Auction is a chance to see all of the art and start your bidding in a relaxed environment. Entry is free! If you'd like to bid on some artworks, tickets are available for $10. Advance tickets are also available online.
You don't have to be present at the close of the auction on Sunday, April 16 to be a successful bidder!
Bidders who bid high on Friday and Saturday often get the art they bid on. MAWA also has volunteer proxy bidders who can make bids for you. Talk to a volunteer at the front desk on Friday or Saturday or email [email protected]. We’ll take your bidder number, the title of the artwork(s) you want to bid on and the maximum amount you are willing to bid and give that information to a proxy bidder who will make bids for you on Sunday as the auction closes.
Successful bidders will be notified Wednesday, April 19 if they are not present for the raffle draw or the close of the auction on Sunday.
Sponsored by Johnston Group & The Winnipeg Foundation
This art auction fundraiser features some of Winnipeg's biggest artists alongside
up-and-comers! There is art for all tastes and all budgets.
Over the Top Art Auction raises funds that enable MAWA to provide professional, engaging visual art programming, such as our Mentorship Programs, Critical Discussion Groups, Skills-Based Workshops, Artist Lectures and Cross-Cultural Craft Program. Many of these programs are filled to capacity, and bring together people from many different backgrounds to share in the pleasure and challenge of visual art.
Free entry! Tickets available for $10 if you'd like to bid on the art.
