McLaughlin Gallery Art Auction


RMG Exposed was truly Out of this World. More than $30,000 was raised by 350 enthusiastic patrons at Oshawa’s McLaughlin Gallery who bid generously on 50 photographic images. The highest bid was $3,500 for this photograph by David Bastedo: a hat worn by The Hip’s Gord Downie.

Gord Downie’s Hat by David Bastedo

I am honored that, for the fourth consecutive year, one of my photographs has been selected by jurors for this fundraiser. Monies raised support art outreach programs for students at local schools.

These people are looking at the woman beside me who has just bid $3000 for Gord Downie’s hat!
