This October the Art Gallery of Hamilton will auction over 400 exciting works of art, beautiful decorative objects and antiques, and vintage jewellery creations by dozens of artists and artisans (with a case of pre-prohibition era vermouth and other much sought-after collectibles thrown in for good measure) at the live and online AGH Super Auctions. All items have been donated to establish an art acquisition endowment to fund the purchase of new works for the AGH permanent collection.
An eclectic mix will be sold in a series of three online auctions, which will culminate in the sale of approximately 150 extraordinary works and objects conducted by Sotheby’s at Super Auction Live on the evening of Tuesday, October 23 at the Art Gallery of Hamilton. From art to furniture, and from decorative arts to jewellery by Cartier and Tiffany & Co. – and with works by renowned Canadian, local and international artists such as Jack Bush, Georges Braque, John McEwen, Pudlo Pudlat, James Ensor, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Barbara Astman, Tim Whiten, Tony Urquhart, Robert Bateman and Norval Morrisseau, among many others – there is something for every taste and pocketbook.
The Super Auction Live Exhibition (from September 22 to October 23) will provide a wide window for you to view the extraordinary works in advance of the live auction on October 23. A catalogue for the Super Auction Live sale will also be available.
With Sotheby’s Canada as our exclusive Super Auction Live partner, the evening of October 23 promises to be fast-paced and exciting. Get your paddle ready!
The exciting series of AGH Online and Live Super Auctions has been made possible through the generosity of artists, dealers, collectors and AGH Members, who have all made significant donations to advance our goal of building an acquisitions endowment. We are exceedingly grateful.
