About Fourth Meridian


The Fourth Meridian defines the Canadian Saskatchewan–Alberta boundary and reflects our focus on Western Canadian art and artists. 

Fourth Meridian Auctions aims to provide a venue in which clients can sell works, raise funds or promote events, as well as offer an innovative means of building a collection. We are pleased to provide our expert services to various fundraising events and organizations. 

We recognise that with so many options in the online auction environment it can sometimes be bewildering for the buyer. In response we’ve created a website which is simple and intuitive to use.

Many of our auctions feature fundraising opportunities for smaller public galleries, if your gallery would like to become involved in one of our future auctions please contact us directly.
