Each year the Peace Art Gallery Society calls upon the talent of local Artists, Artisans & Craftspeople to offer a unique piece of original art to be auctioned. The society relies on the generosity of the Arts Community and Local Businesses to support the Arts in our area. This fund raising event enables P.A.G.S. to continue to encourage and support the Arts with workshops, free childrens’ programs, bursaries, exhibition openings and so much more.
