Welcome to the On The Rivet by Glen McMinn Art Auction, in support of the QEII Foundation.

Nova Scotia artist Glen McMinn donated this painting as he was inspired to fundraise for cancer care by his own experiences - his parents both passed from cancer early in their lives. After learning about the impact the QEII Foundation and BMO Ride for Cancer community has on local cancer research and care at the QEII each year, he felt the bike saddle depicted in On the Rivet would be a perfect fit for an art auction fundraiser. 

Recently, Glen has been recognized for his partnership with the Boston Bruins and their star forward, fellow Nova Scotian Brad Marchand in creating a painting to benefit a young hockey player who suffered a spinal cord injury.  Glen has also worked with Hockey Hall of Fame goalie and Canadian icon Ken Dryden on a large format painting of his famed mask. 

Each one of his paintings has a story and meaning behind it, showcasing the incredible power of art. To learn more about Glen and his work, please visit https://www.glenmcminn.com/
