Art Show Patron Tickets

The SPAC 71st Anniversary Spring Show at the Mary Winspear Centre is recognized island-wide as a superior exhibition and sale of original paintings, sculpture, pottery, fibre and textile arts, fine crafts and jewellery.

Every year we invite members of our community who appreciate art for their personal or professional spaces to become a SPAC Art Patron.

As an Art Patron, for your non-refundable $175 contribution to SPAC, you will enjoy the following benefits:

  • An invitation for you and one guest (2 people) to attend the private Patrons’ Gala on Friday April 26, 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm at the Mary Winspear Centre prior to the opening of the Show. Be one of the first to browse the Main Gallery in-person, meet the artists and purchase artwork.
  • Gala perks include wine from a local vineyard and gourmet appetizers from a local caterer.
  • $100 credit towards your purchase of an original piece of art from more than 700 pieces on display in the Main Exhibition Hall. This credit may not be used in the Gift Shop.
  • Complimentary entry to the weekend Show and Gift Shop for further viewing.

My wife and I have been proud supporters and patrons of the SPAC Spring Show since 2019. The diversity of the Show guarantees something for every palette for the visual arts lover such as us. The annual Show is a definite highlight in our social calendar – and our walls are covered with pieces from the wonderful local artists. We have yet to leave a Show without a new treasure for our home. A big thank you to the many volunteers who organize SPAC and continue to bring us this wonderful event. And another heartfelt thank you for the continuing opportunity to be a patron of your fantastic Show. Josh and Andrea Prowse
