A fundraiser in benefit of the Niagara Artists Centre (NAC) with auction proceeds to benefit both NAC and Rodman Art Institute of Niagara (RAiN).

The Niagara Artists Centre and Rodman Arts Institute of Niagara are joining forces to raise funds by raising the roof—All for one and all at once! Join us on Saturday 11 May at the Rodman Hall Boutique Hotel (you know the place), for a one-of-a-kind culinary experience prepared by some of Niagara’s finest chefs, a live auction of incredible artwork, special surprise entertainments featuring Angie Quick, Brainkite, Chance Mutuku, Femmes Du Feu, Hercinia Collective, Niagara Roller Girls, Routine Exploits, and Runit Dome. Stick around for a dance & video party hosted by Routine Exploits and Runit Dome. Plus! Guests can jump in for the whole shebang with an overnight stay in one of the hotel’s lavishly appointed rooms. We’ll have the run of the joint!

Put on your most swellegant attire ... we’ll change the shape of the place!

How this auction works ...

There are several ways this auction has been engineered for the benefit of organizations, artists, and donors.

  • There is no auction premium. (Typically, auction houses levy 15% or more on sales.) There is no HST applied to sales
  • Artists and donors have the option of donating half or all of the proceeds from the sale of their art work to NAC and RAiN
  • Artists and donors will receive charitable tax receipts for the donated portion of the sale
  • Artists with art work that has been donated to the sale by collectors will be entitled to a resale royalty payment of 5%
