Art-O-Rama 2024: Harcourt House’s awesome annual art sale fundraiser is extra important this year as it’s in support of the 35-year-old gallery being able to purchase its longtime home. Curated by Jacek Malec and Darren Kooyman, the selection of affordable ($10-$500), small format works include paintings, sculpture, drawings, photography, glass, ceramics, jewelry and more, made by artists from Edmonton, Calgary and beyond. The in-person opening is 7—10 p.m., with live music by The White Cats Jazz Trio and Bill Damur. A perfect way to pick up a thoughtful gift, these events are lots of fun, too — so pop on by opening night or through the show’s extended-gallery-hours run.
