“Up the ante” is an Indigenous Art Show & Silent Auction that begins with appreciation for Indigenous artists’ gifts. We hope that by showcasing Indigenous art of this region, this show will also “up the ante” in (re)negotiating our ways of living together here on Nipissing territory.

Proceeds from the silent auction will go to the White Water Gallery’s renovation fund.
