On January 30 at the Galerie Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain, the Quebec Gay Archives held a draw for the work generously donated by artist Kent Monkman. Held in the presence of gallery owner Pierre-François Ouellette, vice-president of the Quebec Gay Archives Iain Blair and AGQ coordinator Pierre Pilotte, this event marked the conclusion of our 2019 fundraising campaign. We congratulate donor and friend of the Archives Gregg Blachford, who won the piece by Kent Monkman.
We would like to thank all our donors for their generosity, without which the 2019 campaign could not have been such a great success. We exceeded our objective of $20,000 by some $5000. Our warmest thanks also to the Galerie Pierre-François Ouellette art contemporain (www.pfoac.com) and of course artist Kent Monkman (www.kentmonkman.com).
