Valentine's Day
Tuesday 14 February
 2023 @ 7:00 PM
Owens Art Gallery

Admission to the event is by donation. Capacity is limited.


We are thrilled to announce the return of the Sweetest Little Thing live and in-person! We can’t wait to welcome you back to the Owens this Valentine’s Day to celebrate art and community. At the heart of this event is a silent auction featuring artworks donated by local, regional, and national artists. For the first time in two years, artworks will be on view in the Owens’ second-floor gallery.


This year’s event will be a little different than before the Covid-19 pandemic, but it is sure to feel as warm and fuzzy as always. You can expect a chance to gather in your fanciest dress, to snap a photo at the Instant Lovin’ Photo Booth, and partake in some dancing. We’ll have outdoor refreshments of hot chocolate and apple cider served by Mount Allison’s Flame snack cart.


While there won’t be a cakewalk this year, there will be a raffle for an epic cake donated by Cranewood on Main Bakery and Café and other fabulous prize packs.


Masks continue to be mandatory at the Owens and Struts and in all buildings at Mount Allison University. We will have extra special pink, magenta, and red KN95 masks to keep us looking festive. Available for free in both child and adult sizes.


Venue Access


The stairs to the Owens from the entrance nearest the University chapel have a handrail. There is also a ramp access at this entrance, however, the ramp is steep. The stairs to the Owens entrance off York Street do not have a handrail.


The main floor of the Owens is wheelchair accessible. Our second floor gallery and bathrooms, located in the basement are not accessible. Two flights of stairs lead to each of these floors.


The Owens welcomes guide dogs and other service animals.

Accessible Parking


There are two reserved accessible parking spaces on the York Street side of the building and one in the circular driveway adjacent to the building.
