Grace Gallery on Main street will open its doors to a one-of-a-kind art sale next Wednesday for the Art of Giving showcase.

The Art of Giving is about support and celebration. Featuring some of Vancouver’s top artists who’ve graciously agreed to sell for a price point of $400 or less in our first ever Cash & Carry original artwork sale.

All proceeds from the event will support Our Social Fabric. This non-profit in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside specializes in textile collection, recycling & re-manufacturing. It also provides employment & social reintegration opportunities for DTES residents.

Local artists who are donating their work for the sale include: Raif Adelberg, Ronan Boyle, Bienvenido Cruz, Andy Dixon, Michael Doehle, Christopher Fadden, Angela Fama, Indigo, Kris Krug, Malcolm Levy, Bobby Mathieson, Jennifer Mawby, Chad Murray, Neal Nolan, Terri Potratz, Stacy Sakai, Philippe Sokazo.

I’ve been a big fan of many of these people for years and it’s so great to see them offering up their pieces for this exceptional cause. The event takes place December 16th from 7:00pm until 11:00pm at Grace Gallery, 1898 Main Street in Vancouver. Food for the event is being sponsored and supplied by Nuba Lebanese Cuisine as well as ABSOLUT Vodka and Jameson Irish Whiskey.

Attendees are asked to bring scarves to the event for donation as well. You can RSVP by emailing [email protected].

    My company supports charities in their fundraising endeavours.

    Wondering if something like this would work with Hockey Memorabilia instead of art!?!

    Any feedback, info or ideas welcome!
