ART CARES | ART IN SUPPORT OF FOOD BANKS CANADA
Since 1965, Bau-Xi Gallery has functioned as a meeting place where we have gathered to form a vibrant community with a shared belief in the importance and soul-sustaining function of art.
As we witness the distressing effects of Covid-19 and its impact on our larger communities in Toronto and Vancouver, we feel the need to act now and help where it is most needed.
In an effort to give back and support the cities that we have called home for over 50 years, we are launching our online exhibition, ART CARES.
This charitable exhibition will feature select paintings, works on paper, and photographs by gallery artists from May 12th to May 31st. 100% of our proceeds will be donated to Food Banks Canada.
As essential organizations, food banks continue to support food insecure Canadians. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, they have been met with uncertainty, seeing a loss in financial support and support staff, and an increase in demand. Food Banks Canada has been supporting provincial food bank networks through their coronavirus response efforts, securing food, finances, and volunteers.
Over $200,000 CAD in artwork has been donated by over 40 Bau-Xi Gallery artists. ART CARES showcases selected artwork located at both Toronto and Vancouver Bau-Xi Gallery locations and can be viewed online.
We salute our artists for their caring and generosity, making this exhibition possible.
Please help us in our effort to support food insecure Canadians in this unprecedented time.
