Celebrating Canada’s LGBTQ2+ Community

Art Angels

There’s something thrilling about purchasing a piece of art with which you have made an aesthetic connection. But that thrill can be enhanced when you know you’re also making a donation to a worthy cause. That’s the idea behind this month’s Art With Heart in Toronto. The annual auction and reception raises funds for Casey House, which provides a range of HIV/AIDS-related services. (These include such things as sending teams of nurses and other workers into clients’ homes for care.)

For 22 years, Art With Heart has brought together some of Canada’s most notable artists, as well as emerging talents, to provide a select marketplace for connoisseurs with a generous streak. Nearly every visual genre is represented—from striking photography to memorable oil paintings. Among the more than 80 artists featured in this year’s auction are Douglas Coupland, Erik Olson and Kim Dorland.

This year’s auction is scheduled for Tuesday, October 6, at The Carlu in Toronto (444 Yonge St.). The reception begins at 5:30 p.m., with the live auction at 7 p.m.
