The Art of Hope - Giving Back

I was contacted recently by Rachel M., a local nurse and volunteer working with Stop The Traffic, an organization working to end human trafficking.  Rachel is currently helping to organize an local fundraising event called The Art of Hope - please click the description below for details and to purchase tickets.

The Art of Hope: An evening showcasing local Calgary and Global artists, ranging from photographers to painters, from sketch artists to musicians, all in support of the fight against human trafficking in Calgary and around the world. A silent art auction will take place along with musical performances and a program portion with special guests. Be ready to be serenaded as you peruse and bid on beautiful pieces of artwork! Tickets include refreshments.




Rachel asked if I would be interested in donating a piece of art for the silent auction and I'm obviously happy to help - but now the question is, which piece?! 


Please view the images below and take a minute to cast your vote at the poll above. The image will be presented as a 16x24" gallery-wrapped fine art canvas, ready to hang as soon as you bring it home. After voting, take a minute to comment with your email address - one voter will win an 8x12" print of the image of their choice.
