Save the Date for 2019 - the MacKenzie Gala is on Friday, November 1, 2019.
On October 12, 2018, over 300 revelers enjoyed complimentary bubbly, acrobatic demonstrations, and riveting dance performances by VIBESYQR X FAMILY BUSINESS. In addition to gallery exhibitions, Gala guests had the exclusive opportunity to view a captivating art installation by Saskatchewan’s Heather Benning, whose trio of sculptures greeted guest and led the way to the Kenderdine Gallery, where a project of her Dollhouse imbued the gathering with drama.
Professional auctioneer Ken McDonald captivated those assembled with his entertaining banter and rapid-fire calling style in a live auction featuring original artworks and once-in-a-lifetime art experiences. Always the centrepiece of the evening, the Live Auction and Silent Auction surpassed our expectations!
We owe the success of this event to everyone involved in the 2018 MacKenzie Gala, including our sponsors, donors, event partners and guests. We are also grateful for contributions from talented artists and generous individuals and local businesses. Together we raised $75,000 in support of the MacKenzie’s art education, programming, and exhibitions.
