We are very excited to announce that the Doris (Sims) Thompson Art Auction goes live today! Doris (Sims) Thompson was a local award winning wildlife artist whose work was featured in galleries across Canada and the United States. Her family is auctioning off all of her remaining original oil on canvas works, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the South Peace Regional Archives Building Fund to support our move to Centre 2000. This is a chance for you to not only get some amazing art, but to support the building of a permanent home for our regions history.
Bidding on the auction is now open at https://app.galabid.com/doristhompsonart/items so check it out today. The auction will run online until March 27, 2022 so don’t miss out!
The auction items are also available to view in person this weekend at the Grande Prairie Mall! Stop by for your chance to win a signed print of one of Doris’ award winning pieces!
And finally, be sure to check out the Fundraising mugs featuring Doris’ art for sale now in the Archives Store!
