Arts Umbrella makes a Splash with charitable art auction & gala

Fairmont Hotel Vancouver13 Oct '18 @ 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Arts Umbrella makes a Splash with charitable art auction & gala
A magical night awaits guests of Splash, Arts Umbrella's highly anticipated art auction and gala, the proceeds from which support youth arts programming across Metro Vancouver. Presented by TD Bank Group, the annual event brings art-lovers together for a show-stopping evening featuring live performances, delicious food, and, at its core, a comprehensive art auction comprised of nearly 100 pieces by prominent B.C. artists. 
 
This year, Splash celebrates its 36th anniversary with auction items donated by an impressive array of feature artists, including Douglas Coupland, Marie Khouri, Jeff Wall, Etienne Zack, Allan Switzer, Ross Penhall, Angela Grossmann, Evan Lee, and Graham Gillmore, among other high-profile creatives. 
 
While browsing and bidding, attendees - which include more than 550 business and community leaders, patrons, collectors, and enthusiasts - will be treated to live performances by the Arts Umbrella Dance Company and Pre-Professional Theatre Troupes, as well as an exclusive showing of a student-created Claymation video. Afterward, guests are invited to hit the dance floor and groove all night long to the musical stylings of DJ Chloe. Hosted by CBC News personalities Gloria Macarenko and Fred Lee, the sparkling affair will take place at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver on Saturday, October 13. Splash will be co-chaired this year by Christie Darbyshire and Bruce Munro Wright - both ardent supporters of the arts.
 
"Splash is a key event in our community," says Paul Larocque, President & CEO of Arts Umbrella. "Arts education can dramatically benefit youth both academically and personally. Last year, we raised a record-breaking $540,000 - and this year, we are determined to beat that number. Every child should have the opportunity to express themselves creatively, and we thank everyone involved with Splash for helping us make this happen."
