Forest City Gallery is pleased to present our Annual Members' Show and Sale Fundraiser, this year titled ‘Lost and Found’. This Show and Sale acts as both an appreciation event to our Membership, as well as FCG's biggest fundraiser of the year!
Join us for an opening reception on December 8th from 4 - 9 PM to get first picks of the show!
For those out of town or unable to make it to the exhibition, there will be an online catalogue launching Dec 9th at noon! Click here for the online catalogue to purchase work directly from home!
There are a few new components this year – beginning with the introduction of the “New Collectors Wall”. We’re dedicating FCG’s largest exhibition wall to works priced $100-$150 to encourage a low-barrier entry into collecting art! Additionally, we will still have most of the gallery adorned with our usual $50-$500 works!
We will also be launching Digest Volume 3! Our annual arts publication always includes exhibition texts from FCG programming and vibrant full colour documentation of past shows. This year, we’ve also commissioned artists and cultural spaces including SAVAC (South Asian Visual Arts Collective), LOMAA (London Ontario Media Arts Organization), grunt gallery, and Near North Mobile Media Lab to produce texts on exciting and dynamic community programming accomplished within the last 2 years! Free copy with any art purchase, or by donation at the gallery.
Finally, join us to unveil our new Members’ Lending Library! We’ve renovated the front of the gallery to now feature 12-15 texts (replaced every 6 months) curated by a local artist around a curatorial premise. For the first iteration, London-based artist Faith Patrick has selected a number of texts pertaining to London History.
Proceeds from artwork sales are split 50/50 between artists and Forest City Gallery. All of the proceeds from Lost and Found will go directly towards FCG's operations, enabling the support and exhibition of contemporary art, promoting dialogue amongst local, regional, and international arts communities.
We're extremely excited to feature many London, Toronto, Windsor, and surrounding region artists in this year's exhibition. Check back on our website and Facebook event page for an updated list of artists!
