Gala At The Gallery!

Carrie and Jeremy Wreford - Co-Owners of Bradshaws - are excited to be Honorary Co-Chairs of Gallery Stratfords' reenvisioned Gala at the Gallery Event on Friday May 5th, 2017. Do you have your tickets yet???

Gallery Stratford has played an important role in our lives in an ever-changing way. When we first moved from Toronto, Carrie joined the board and met new friends who welcomed us to Stratford and introduced us to the creative community here. Since then, we have enjoyed Gallery Stratford’s unique exhibits, events, movie nights and galas and appreciate the mix of contemporary Canadian art and local talent.

As our children grow, we have participated in a different side of Gallery Stratford; Sunday drop-in kid's art sessions, Arts Alive summer camp, and on a number of different occasions, our daughter’s preschool and kindergarten classes visited Gallery Stratford to work on collaborative art projects with gallery staff, volunteers and local seniors.

More recently, we have enjoyed seeing local high school students exhibit their artwork, the emergence of projects like Stratford ArtCycle, #ShareStratfordArtButtons, the Steelbox Art Lab, Little Art Library and community engagement with Perth Pop-Up Market hosted last summer.


The decision to change the format of the I Love My Gallery Gala Auction was not an easy one, and not without risk. The auction is the Gallery’s major fundraiser and has been a successful event for many years. Our hope is that this new gala format, which coincides with the Gallery’s 50th anniversary, will open the event and the doors of Stratford’s fabulous gallery space to a larger number of people - a great big party, which we hope you will enjoy. We’d like to acknowledge the hard work of Angela, Clodagh, the Gallery staff and board, the donors and volunteers who made this all possible.            

We recognize the importance of Gallery Stratford and how it integrates with our lives and our community. We are excited to have been asked to act as honorary co-chairs and would welcome you to join in the festivities. We encourage you to continue to support Gallery Stratford’s endeavours by bidding generously; your contribution will ensure that they are able to continue to provide the excellent programming and exhibits into the future.

See you at the (NEW) Gala!
