Marc Bell has a work in the upcoming Canadian Art Foundation auction.
“Now in its 17th year, the Canadian Art Gallery Hop Gala and Auction is Toronto’s signature visual-art event, attracting a who’s who of the Canadian contemporary art scene. This year’s event is inspired by the impact of conceptualism on art-making in this country. The venue—the elegant Carlu ballroom—will, for one night only, be transformed by artists An Te Liu and Micah Lexier into an incredible experience for gala attendees.
Our live and silent auction showcases an exceptional selection of artworks by Canada’s emerging and established art stars. It provides the perfect opportunity to acquire a new work of art while supporting artists and the Canadian Art Foundation, one of Canada’s most respected visual-arts organizations.
We are delighted to welcome Lisa Dennison, Chairman, Sotheby’s North and South America, who will share her knowledge of the current art market with gala guests. Over the course of her distinguished career, Ms. Dennison has developed outstanding relationships with important collectors, artists and experts worldwide. She is an internationally recognized figure in the fields of modern and contemporary art. We are equally delighted to have Senior Auctioneer, C. Hugh Hildesley, conduct the live auction. Hildesley has conducted some of Sotheby’s most prestigious sales, including the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Sale and the Sale of the Property of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. He holds the record for the highest selling price at auction of any Canadian painting: Paul Kane’s Scene in the Northwest—Portrait of John Henry Lefroy in 2002 for $5.2 million.”
