Splash 2022

It’s fall and, once again, Arts Umbrella – a long-time favourite organization of ours! – is getting ready to host its annual Splash Art Auction on October 22nd.

Now in its 40th year, Splash features the work of nearly 100 talented and generous artists from across Canada and beyond. Artists like Graham Gillmore – a Vancouver-raised,  internationally renowned painter whose work has been exhibited in museums from the Ghent Museum in Belgium to the Vancouver Art Gallery and New York’s MOMA.

The proceeds from Arts Umbrella’s Splash will benefit young people looking for vivid experience and top-calibre classes in the visual and performing arts.

For those who cannot attend the gala in person or virtually, the artworks are also available for online bidding.
