Each year around this time the MacKenzie Art Gallery hosts a gala fundraiser to help support gallery operations. The 2015 gala goes on Friday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.

You can find out more information on the MAG website. But the event typically includes entertainment, refreshments of both the liquid and solid variety, and live and silent auctions.

In addition to all the festivities, you’ll also be able to check out the exhibitions that are currently on display at the gallery. These include:

EDITION ADDITION II Exhibition of prints from the permanent collection that explores the ambiguous space between unique art object and mass-produced poster. Artists include Andy Warhol, Mary Pratt and Christopher Finn. (Until Nov. 22.)
