Call to Artists

The ART for Cancer Foundation is pleased to announce “Toronto’s First Anonymous Art Show”.  This group exhibition and fundraising event will feature work from established as well as emerging artists and is an important fundraiser for the many creative programs delivered free by ART for Cancer Foundation, to people living with cancer.

Hundreds of original paintings created in a diverse style and subject matter will be available for sale all sized  8” x 8” x 1½” (gallery style) canvas or wood cradled panel. Each piece is priced at $100.

The artist remains a mystery, until after the purchase. Purchased paintings are immediately taken off the wall and given to the purchaser. In its place a sold tag will hang revealing the artist’s name. Tax receipts are available to the artist once a piece is sold.

The opening reception and sale is Thursday, December 3 from 7- 9:30pm, at AFC Place- 1884 Davenport Road and the sale continues until Sunday, December 6th, giving the community an opportunity to purchase original art in time for Christmas, while at the same time supporting a worthy cause.
