Canvas Canada


The Alberta Council for the Ukrainian Arts (ACUA) in partnership with the Ukrainian Canadian Art Foundation (UCAF)/KUMF Gallery (Toronto) launch their first online fundraising auction with a twist, Canvas Canada – Exhibit “i. We are pleased to announce anchoring the event will be Waddington’s Auctioneers and Appraisers. 

To celebrate milestone anniversaries – the 35th for ACUA and the 45th for KUMF Gallery – Canvas Canada – Exhibit “i”, will feature the works of Ukrainian and Canadian artists from across the country – ranging from paintings, drawings, photographs, ceramics, sculptures or textiles to graphic works, illustrations, and mock-ups — all exhibited anonymously. The identity of the artist appears on the back of each piece.

We would be honored to have your help to launch, “Canvas Canada – Exhibit “i” and invite you to join artists from across Canada and submit an original work of art on a 10” x 10” canvas. The canvas will be provided by the hosting organizations (ACUA & UCAF).

Art enthusiasts will be able to view and bid, relieved of the pressure of needing to know who the artists are, or they can take pleasure in the guessing game! The artist behind the work is only revealed after it is purchased.

Canvas Canada – Exhibit “i” will be supported with a social and traditional media campaign. We are very, excited about your participation in Canvas Canada – Exhibit “i” and look forward to showcasing your special artwork. The artist information sheet is attached.

Please confirm your participation by Tuesday June1, 2021 at We appreciate your support and look forward to connecting with you.
