Cézanne’s Closet is Union Gallery’s ever popular annual fundraiser and has been a beloved local arts event in Katarokwi-Kingston since 1995. Tickets are $100 each and guarantee the ticket holder one artwork—but, with a twist.

Tickets are drawn in lottery style and when a ticket holder’s name is called, they have two minutes to claim an artwork of their choice. Over 60 artworks are available in a multitude of styles, juried from generous donations by student and professional artists on a local, national and international scale. This year’s edition of Cézanne’s Closet includes a fundraiser preview exhibition at Union Gallery, co-curated by Art History graduate students Katie Hetherington and Maggie Whitmore. All are invited to view Cézanne’s Closet artworks in-person and a catalogue will be available online. All funds raised directly support Union Gallery's programming, including exhibitions, artist residencies, workshops and more.

Live Ticketed Event (on Zoom): Saturday, February 19, 2022, 7pm EST
