Union Gallery is a not-for-profit public contemporary art gallery

Support from the community has been essential for our continued operations since 1994. There are several ways to support the gallery, including our annual fundraiser event, financial donations, and annual membership.

Make a Donation


Artists can directly support Union Gallery by donating an artwork to the gallery's largest annual fundraiser, Cézanne’s Closet. Artworks in a variety of media are accepted—paintings, photographs, drawings, prints and small-scale sculptures are encouraged.

Cézanne’s Closet is a ticketed art gala and a beloved local event and fundraiser for Union Gallery since 1995. During the event, tickets are drawn in a lottery style and when a ticket holder's name is called, they have two minutes to claim an artwork of their choice. Cézanne’s Closet makes for an intense if not exhilarating evening, as ticket holders eagerly keep an eye on their favourite artworks. Live entertainment and comical MC's contribute to a fun flurry of festivities. Tickets are $100, and each ticket guarantees the ticket holder 1 original artwork. All funds raised directly support Union Gallery's programming.
