Now in it's 9th year, RMG Exposed brings together artists, collectors, curators, and the community to celebrate photography and support arts programming throughout Durham Region.

This year's theme, Good Vibrations, will deliver beach vibes and tropical charm. Exposed is an all-inclusive Saturday night staycation: food, bar, entertainment, and the opportunity to bid on over 50 artworks are all included in your ticket.
