Join us in celebrating our 40-year-plus history, while helping us fundraise towards a bright and sustainable future. We’d like to think that since our inception we’ve continued to be a pivotal centre for contemporary visual art in Hamilton and beyond. By attending and supporting us through this event, you will be helping us present challenging contemporary exhibitions, stimulate critical dialogue, and foster local artist initiatives for years to come.
7:00 – 10:00 pm – Ticketed
Support your artist-run center by joining us for our annual Inc. Squared fundraiser! An evening of art, music, dancing, and good times with friends! Attend early to get first dibs on works created by our talented membership and local/regional artists. All works are priced affordably $200 (medium sized work) $100 (small work) and will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. There will also be wonderful items and services to bid on for the silent auction.
10:00 pm — LATE — Pay what you can
Do you like dancing? Do you like fun? Do you like music? Join us as the dance party kicks up after 10:00 pm. After 10:00 pm, entry to the event is pay what you can and in what we're calling Rush Hour, any remaining works that haven’t yet sold will be available for 50% off — small works $50, medium $100.
Please consider donating a work by checking out the call to artists below.
