Bid for Lake Winnipeg 2021

Support a healthy Lake Winnipeg – and local artists – by taking part in our online art auction! Back for its second year, this auction is your chance to bid on a diverse collection of pieces generously donated by lake-loving makers. The auction site is now live until August 6 at 11:59 p.m.! 

VISIT

Head to the LWF art auction site between July 2 and 11:59 p.m. on August 6, 2021. 

BID

Place a bid. Only the highest bidder wins and pays for the prize. No need to choose a favourite – you can bid on as many pieces as you’d like, as many times as you’d like! 

WIN

Keep your eye on the prize (and the bids!) by checking the site often. Winners will automatically receive an email from the auction site.  

THE FINE PRINT

Payments can be made automatically through the auction site. LWF staff can also coordinate payments via cheque or credit card. 

LWF can issue charitable receipts for a portion of each winning bid, provided the bid amount meets Canada Revenue Agency’s “intention to make a gift” threshold of 125 per cent of the fair market value of the piece. 

Please note: Due to size and fragility, we are not offering shipping. All winners must be able to pick up their pieces from LWF’s Winnipeg office. Pieces must be paid for and picked up by September 10, 2021 or they will go to the next highest bidder.

Good luck to everyone – and happy bidding! 

Here's a sneak peek at some of the pieces available:

Macrame art hanging on a wall next to a window with two potted plants

Painting of an adriondack patio chair looking out onto the lake

Wood-carved paddle looking down from the handle

Painting of a tree overlooking Lake Winnipeg
