WELCOME ART LOVERS!

We are hosting an art sale. All proceeds from our sale shall be passed to Mr. Jacek Gonia from Wroclaw, Poland who organizes convoys with humanitarian aid to people stranded in the Ukrainian frontline. I know that every penny will reach the people in need. The sales take place at:

Lakeshore LINC Centre
2275 Lake Shore Boulevard W. Unit 200

Our first sale took place on September 30, 2022, and we sent CAD $1055 via the First Baptist Church in Wroclaw, Poland. The second sale took place on December 16, 2022, and we got $300. I matched it this time, so we sent CAD $639.32 via SLOT Stowarzyszenie Lokalnych Ośrodków Twórczych. All the money is given to Mr. Gonia’s humanitarian convoy.

Please, join our donors and bring any artwork that you would like to part with to support the Ukrainian people.

In my thirty three years of work with newcomers, I have worked with people of many trades. Among my students, there were some visual artists. Some of them were giving me their pieces of art. I also got some paintings from my friends and relatives. That is how I came into possession of more than seventeen canvases. This spring I brought them all to my school with the intention of creating a permanent exhibition there. Now, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has escalated into a full-scale military conflict that may destroy the world as we know it. We are told about atrocities, war crimes and acts of genocide. I asked myself a question: “What can a person living on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean do to help the suffering civilians, the refugees, the disabled, all the victims of war?” Then it came to my mind that I can start selling the pieces of art I have collected over the  years, and financially  support the humanitarian aid to Ukraine. You can also support our cause by donating your pieces of art to us.

Below, you will find photographs taken by Grzegorz Lityński, a scientist, a photographer, a scientist, and a traveler, who generously donated some of his works to support our cause. The prints may be made to size at your request.
