"For those who have visited my legal offices, it is clear that I always have my eye on potential new additions to my art collection. The best place in Mississauga (besides my office) to see cutting edge art is the AGM, and for those planning to acquire great art locally, the best place to do so is our AGM art auction on April 27!
At last year's auction, I won the bidding war to acquire a masterpiece by Ed Pien, one of Canada's best established artists. That purchase has garnered frequent praise from clients visiting my office and I hope to nab an equally promising one this year! I urge you all to join me!"
- Stan Zigelstein, Board Chair, Art Gallery of Mississauga
"Happy Birthday AGM! 30 years strong and building! For the past 14 years, the AGM has proudly offered the only high-level fine art auction experience in the Mississauga area, with a mission to bring together artists and people who love art. A recent survey carried out by University College London concluded that looking at beautiful works of art has the same impact on the brain as falling in love. I encourage you all to continue with or begin your own love affair by securing one of the incredible works of art offered at this important sale.
The AGM's Auction offers a diverse selection of contemporary art and celebrates the institution's 30th year of award-winning and critically acclaimed exhibitions by both emerging and established artists. With the generous support of our Lead Sponsor Square One Shopping Centre, the AGM is expanding its audiences and engaging our community in new and innovative ways. The auction presents a great snapshot of Canadian art and reflects many of the incredible artists who have exhibited with the AGM during its past 30 years. I invite you all to come and fall in love and ensure that all of these incredible works of art go to new collections in support of the AGM's powerful curatorial and educational programmes."
