Casey House’s 25th Art With Heart presented by TD Bank Group takes place Tuesday October 16 at the AGO. The 2018 edition of Art With Heart offers a collection of works you will not find anywhere else. Tickets are on sale now at artwithheart.ca
Art With Heart has long been the place where buyers not only discover new and exciting talent from emerging artists, but also have access to many of Canada’s most celebrated contemporary artists. The 25th annual auction will continue this tradition, presenting works by James Lahey, Shelley Adler, Kim Dorland, Meryl McMaster, John Scott, Erin Loree and Douglas Coupland, to name a few. Many artists have created individual works especially for this milestone event. Others, such as Micah Lexier and Diana Thorneycroft have gone back into their personal archives and contributed work they were holding onto from previously sold out editions.
The diversity of the Art With Heart collection this year is unprecedented, featuring Indigenous artists from across the country; Kent Monkman and Shuvinai Ashoona are among those who are returning, while BC’s Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun will be presented at Art With Heart for the first time. Another first is Rebecca Belmore’s limited edition ‘Xmark’, sponsored by Urbacon, on sale now.
Auctioning work from five members of the Bierk family is an Art With Heart first. Four of the talented Bierk brothers each contributed a work, and for the first time since his death, the family contributed an artwork by their father David Bierk. Casey House is grateful to this family for their enduring support of Art With Heart, beginning with David, who donated work to the very first auction.
