Excellent Turnout at Auction House

After months of planning and weeks of anticipation for one of the BFA’s biggest fundraising events of the year, we are delighted with the support the Kingston community showed last night at Tango Nuevo. We are extremely pleased with the success of the auction  and not to mention the outstanding tapas that were prepared! We hope that events such as the annual fundraiser continue to foster arts in the Queen’s community and our larger community of Kingston. Many thanks are owed to Tango Nuevo, Tom, the charismatic  PolySci student who volunteered to be our MC, to our professor generosity, to Anna Speyer’s and Caitlin Lapeña’s hard work, and last but certainly not least, the generosity and support of the bidders. The success of the auction proves the support of the visual  arts! We hope that the results of this years hard work will be seen at our graduating show.
