How does it work? This year Over the Top is a little different. A group of artworks will be auctioned each month. Check them out online at charityauction.bid/mawa or come to MAWA to view and bid in person (with controlled social distancing).

On Sunday, July 26 at 9:00 pm CST, this art lot will close online, and on the First Friday of August, bidding on the next lot will begin. Bids must be in increments of no less than $10. Any work that is not sold in a previous lot will be available online at the reserve bid price that has been established by the artist.

It is free to bid, either online or in the MAWA space. We recommend that you bid high and bid early to ensure you get that beautiful piece of art that will otherwise haunt your dreams!

MAWA will be open Wednesdays-Saturdays, so you can come and admire the artworks. The Over the Top Art Auction is arguably the biggest group show in the city. 

Live outside of Winnipeg? No problem! MAWA is happy to ship your purchase to you at your expense. Everyone is welcome! Please join in this online celebration of art, in support of visual art education for all

This is a brand-new format, so we will depend on you to help spread the word via your networks and social media. We hope that by taking Over the Top online, it promotes our amazing artists and grows the MAWA community beyond Winnipeg. This event raises up to 12% of MAWA’s entire budget and is essential to the programming that MAWA provides.

We look forward to seeing you at Over the Top!

Remember, final bids must be placed by 9 pm CST on Sunday, July 26. If you have placed the highest bid, we will contact you the following week to arrange for shipping or pick up.
