News from Concrete Contemporary Art & Projects



As we turn the corner into our Spring 2018 auction season, we have some exciting news to share about Concrete Contemporary Auctions and Projects in our ongoing effort to create more opportunities for Canadian contemporary works.

This season we are presenting our Concrete Contemporary auctions in conjunction with the Canadian, Inuit, and Indigenous Art departments at Waddington’s. That means that rather than hold stand-alone auctions of Canadian contemporary art, all works consigned to us for sale will either be offered in our new, bi-monthly Canadian Art Select online auctions or will be placed into our bi-annual Canadian Fine Art live auctions. These cross-departmental auctions will greatly increase the exposure of Canadian contemporary art to other areas of the market.

Our Canadian Fine Art auction on May 28 will include major works by Carol Wainio, Michael Adamson and a rare work by Mike Bayne as part of the contemporary component of the auction.

The Canadian Art Select online auction in April will also feature a number of impressive contemporary works. Consignments to both auctions are still open with an end of March deadline for the Canadian Fine Art auction and consignments to the Canadian Select auction open on an ongoing basis. The consignment process will continue to be a seamless experience with property curated by Stephen Ranger and Kristin Vance.

Over the past five years we have set auction records and created secondary markets for dozens of important contemporary artists -- our new format promises to expand on this mandate. And we will continue to focus on Canadian Contemporary Art with a renewed focus on exhibitions, events and ongoing special projects.

Please contact Kristin Vance at kv@waddingtons.ca to discuss sale dates and deadlines.

As always, we look forward to seeing you in our galleries.
