Waddington’s Auctioneers & Appraisers in Toronto is holding a pop-up contemporary art auction to benefit LGBT communities in Orlando and Toronto.
Toronto artist Mark Gleberzon approached Waddington’s with his idea to raise money for the LGBT communities in Orlando and Toronto, and they immediately wanted to help.
The opportunity to be able to respond to a tragedy that has shaken us all in an immediate and meaningful way, made suggesting to host an online art auction a no-brainer.
More than 100 artists have donated works to the auction as a result of Mark’s Facebook posting last week. The auction features small-scale artworks (acrylic, oil and encaustic paintings, mixed-media, photography, sculpture, jewellery and more) by Mark Gleberzon, Sharon Barr, Laura Culic, Shelagh Young-Howard, and Carol Westcott are among the artists who have contributed works. The online gallery is available for those who cannot make the show.
