Schmoozy is back /// November 24

Please join us to celebrate Latitude 53's vibrant history of supporting artists while raising funds to support future programming at the annual fundraising gala and silent art auction, Schmoozy.

This year, the silent auction will be comprised of artists who have exhibited at Latitude 53 over the past 45 years, showcasing the artists that Latitude 53 is honoured to have supported and the organization's rich history of supporting contemporary art practices since 1973.

Proceeds raised at this event support upcoming exhibitions and programming, allowing Latitude 53 to continue support artists who push the boundaries of contemporary art and provide a safe space for artists to take risks.

We are excited to feature work by Diana Thorneycroft, Jon Sasaki, Micah Lexier, Giuseppe Albi, Luis Jacob, Yvonne Mullock, Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Shawna Dempsey & Lorri Millan, Peter von Tiesenhausen, Osvaldo Ramirez Castillo, Allison Hrabluik, Emmanuel Osahor, Thomas Kneubühler, Zachary Ayotte and many, many more!

Online auction catalogue available shortly.

Stay tuned for announcements of sponsors, food and entertainment.
