“Gallery Hop Gala 2013 – Canadian Art Foundation Gallery Hop

“This year, the Canadian Art Foundation returns to the Carlu for the 18th annual Gallery Hop Gala Dinner and Auction on Thursday, September 19. This much-anticipated event draws a crowd of art enthusiasts who come together to support artists living and working in Canada. This year, the event concept is “Inside Story,” and will examine the themes and ideas underlying contemporary Canadian art.

The main events are our live and silent auctions, which showcase a group of works that were specifically chosen for the event by a committee of art experts, providing guests with the opportunity to acquire key works by emerging and established artists while supporting the Canadian Art Foundation, publisher of Canadian Art.

We are very excited to welcome Gabriela Palmieri, Senior Specialist in the Contemporary Art Department at Sotheby’s, who will conduct the live auction this year. Palmieri was previously Head of Contemporary Art Day Sales, overseeing major sales for the house including Ed Ruscha’s I Don’t Want No Retro Spective, Gerhard Richter’s Abstraktes Bild and Willem de Kooning’s Untitled. The record total of $107.8 million for a day sale at any auction house was achieved under Palmieri’s direction at Sotheby’s in May 2008.

The Canadian Art Foundation Gallery Hop is a two-part event comprised of a fundraising gala as well as a free day of talks, tours and panels at galleries across Toronto.”[canadianart.ca]
