Silent Art Auction – The end to a great year!

Bidding in the Algoma Highlands Conservancy’s Silent Art Auction is now over and art is on the way to the homes of our many friends and supporters. A BIG thank you to everyone who made the Art Auction a success – especially Carla Marcellus, who undertook this ambitious project for the AHC, the talented artists who generously donated their work, AHC staff and volunteers who worked behind the scenes, and the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre and Stokely Creek Lodge who hosted the art and auction. We look forward to planning and running more great events and interesting AHC projects in 2012, keep checking this space!
