Even the last ticket drawn has a choice from 31 works, which creates an atmosphere of suspense and entertainment.

The gala is hosted by creative writing prof. Michael V. Smith and features a wide selection of art, food, refreshments.

"I love Art on the Line. There is so much talent in the valley, and so many great students studying fine art at UBC Okanagan. Art on the Line is the best place to see work by all of our local artists. It's a fun night to support students. AND, you walk away with a great piece of work for your walls." ~ Michael V. Smith

Funds raised from this event are distributed amongst the Visual Arts Course Union to financially aid with events such as the 4th year graduate exhibition, visiting artists, and art focused student trips. This year, 10% of the proceeds will go to Cool Arts Society

Call for Submissions - Deadline January 10

The committee is currently accepting donations in the form of two and three dimensional artworks. Each submission is auctioned off at the event through a randomly drawn raffle process whereby auction ticket holders have purchased full price tickets at $185.00. As the goal is to offer the best selection of artwork, the request is that donations be of suitable quality and equivalent to the auction ticket price.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Donations must be received before January 10th, 2018 at 4:00 pm.
  • All donations must be individually identified with a submission form attached to each work. 
  • All works must be ready to hang or display
