The art, which is currently on display at BAF, will be auctioned between August 10-24, 2021 in partnership with Heffel Fine Art Auction House.

Burrard Arts Foundation Together Again Art Auction

  • When: Exhibition (July 15 to August 24, 2021); Auction (August 10 to 24, 2021)
  • Where: Burrard Arts Foundation (#2 – 258 East 1st Ave, Vancouver) & online

While it’s common for arts organizations to host fundraising auctions for their own benefit, the primary purpose of Together Again is to support the participating artists themselves.  

This means that the vast majority of the hammer price will be returned to the artist – a unique and valuable opportunity in a city where the space, time, and financial resources needed to create art can be scarce. Artists need all the support possible, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

“Aptly named, Together Again evokes the sensation of revisiting community and connection after a long and trying period of separation,” said Christian Chan, Founder and Director of the Burrard Arts Foundation, “Not only does the exhibition bring together our talented alumni, but it has also allowed us to partner with another arts organization to give back to our community.” 

The exhibition features 37 artworks by 24 of the many exceptional artists who have been part of BAF’s exhibitions and programming over the past seven years.
