A Benefit for Mercer Union, a centre for contemporary art
Doors open at 6 pm – Draw at 7 pm
Mc’d by Robert Dayton
Mercer Union has asked 25 artists to each contribute a work on paper produced in an edition of 5, less than or equal to 20″ x 30″. That means 125 chances for you to take home a unique work of contemporary art, while supporting Toronto’s leading artist-run centre. Purchase a ticket to be guaranteed a work at the event – ticket numbers will be drawn in random order giving you one minute to select. Enjoy complimentary food and beverages as participants vie for their favourites!
Participating artists include: Diane Borsato, FASTWÜRMS, Public Studio, Derek Liddington, Laurie Kang, Krista Buecking, Jon Sasaki, Zin Taylor, Liz Knox, Jean-Paul Kelly, Alvin Luong, Maggie Groat, Terrarea (Janis Demkiw, Emily Hogg, Olia Mishchenko), Lorna Mills, Oliver Pauk, Jillian K Ross, Lili Huston-Herterich, Daniel Barrow, Geoffrey Pugen, Jason Gowans, Marla Hlady, Svea Ferguson and more…
Each $175 ticket entitles the holder to one edition, to be selected by numbered draw the night of the event. Improve your chances of getting first pick of your favourite work by purchasing a Collector 3 Pack for $500. All ticket purchasers will have an hour to preview editions on offer before the ticket draw begins.
