Over the Top Art Auction

Over the Top Art Auction and Cupcake Party!

  • March 20, 2016, 2:00pm – 5:00pm
  • MAWA, 611 Main Street

$10 advance tickets, $12 at the door

Bidding ends with all-you-can eat cupcakes!
First lot closes at 3pm

Finally! The art event of the year! Munch as many cupcakes as you can handle, quaff a beverage, buy tickets for MAWA’s fabulous raffle baskets and bid on work by artists such as Eleanor Bond, Diana Thorneycroft, Aganetha Dyck, Steve Gouthro and many, many more. You might discover an emerging artist who will be the next art star to come out of Winnipeg!

This year will be better than ever, with some exciting changes! Artists will set minimum bids on their work, at levels of $50, $100, $250 or $500. We want to ensure that artwork is auctioned for an appropriate value.

If you love MAWA and want to support it, please consider donating artwork. You don’t have to be a MAWA member and we welcome pieces by artists of all genders, in all media. Please email and let us know you will be contributing. Then fill out an artist contract (available on our website) and drop it off with your work at 611 Main Street. MAWA accepts donations:
Wednesday, March 2 from 10am-6pm
Thursday, March 3 from 10am-6pm
Friday, March 4 from 10am-6pm
Wednesday, March 9 from 10am-8pm
Thursday, March 10 from 10am-6pm
Friday, March 11 from 10am-6pm

Contributing artists receive a ticket to the event, a tax receipt equal to the amount paid for their artwork, and our eternal thanks! All proceeds go towards programming at Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art and contribute over 10% to our annual budget.

If you are a cupcake baker, please consider making a dozen or two. Our hungry auction attendees will love you for it. Email us Cheryl at to let us know if you intend to bake. All cupcake donors will be entered into a draw to win a thank you prize.

Thanks so much! We look forward to seeing you all on March 20. Art and cupcakes … how can you resist?
