(Toronto, February 5, 2010) Once a year, close to St. Valentine's Day, an extraordinary exhibition/auction of art by established Canadian artists and Creative Spirit Artists takes place. This generous act on the part of artists, art dealers and collectors provides funds to support artists with disabilities and provides a rare opportunity to see and purchase a wide spectrum of contemporary Canadian art.
Creative Spirit Art Centre is a tiny public art gallery/studio in Toronto; which is dedicated to helping disabled artists make, exhibit and sell their art and integrate into the mainstream arts community. The art centre survives on donations of volunteer labour, materials and money. It does not receive sustaining funds from government or arts councils.
We invite art collectors and the general public to view, bid and purchase an exceptional, original art work by Canadian artists and help "artists helping artists".
