About Art for Charity T.O.:
Our little group started off as a private art-for-charity auction that garnered immediate interest among artists to provide a charitable events platform. We are also artists volunteering to keep this afloat, hoping to share our passions in creating more charitable events in the future.
Please observe the art pieces below and place your offer amount(s) in CAD and art selection(s) in an email to ArtforCharityTO@gmail.com. Your offer cannot be lower that the starting offer listed for the piece. Winners will be announced at our “Coexisting with Wildlife” event (time to be determined).
- Sparrow / Starting price: $80
This marker drawing portrays a sparrow in flight. It has been written that “the sparrow symbolism reflects the self-worth that each of us should feel for ourselves regardless of external factors. This energy and passion for ourselves is within each of our hearts somewhere, waiting to be awakened. These little songbirds want us to sing our soul’s own song, just as they do. ”
–Leah M. BostwickDaniel Salij / Daniel Salij is a multi-disciplinary artist whose productions are created from a feelings-first perspective. A piece of art, whether it be music or visual or dramatic, is first conceived as the feelings which are to be stimulated in the viewer. The process of creation then becomes a meditation upon the intention of the piece.
