Gala Art Auction

Perreault_Paintings_-North_East_LightsFor several years now the MacKenzie Art Gallery has hosted an annual fall fundraiser to help support various exhibition and education programming that goes on at the gallery during the rest of the year. Above, for instance, is an image from the Wilf Perreault exhibition In The Alley that is on at the gallery until Jan. 4.

Last year, the MacKenzie co-hosted the gala with the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame. This year, the gallery is going it alone, but you can expect the same great food (gourmet canapes, to be specific), liquid refreshments and live entertainment. In addition, there are live and silent auctions featuring work by some of Saskatchewan’s finest artists.

The gala will be held at the MacKenzie on Oct. 24 beginning at 6:30 p.m. Dress is formal, and tickets are $90 for gallery members and $100 for non-members. You can find out more information here.


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
