F*ck Cancer Family Fundraiser. One day only! Saturday April 20 from 10-3.

Please help me raise some money for my lovely mom, and fellow artist Annie Kmyta Cunnington, who is currently undergoing cancer treatment. Because she lives in Northern Ontario, she has had to relocate to the nearest treatment centre for the duration of her treatment. She is the most generous person that I know, and I would love to repay her some of that kindness with your help.

Silent auction Saturday April 20 from 10am-3pm.

*There are eight artworks in total to bid on. 1 by Jill Price, 1 by Hilary Slater, 3 by Bewabon Shilling, and 3 by myself.

*Each piece has an opening bid of $100 going up in $50 increments.

*You do NOT need to be in the gallery to bid on artworks (it’s Easter, and I know that family is important) although they will be installed in the gallery for you to see and bid on in person.

*Absentee bids can be placed by phone 705-331-3145, or emailed to tanyacunnington@gmail.com.

*Payment will be received by cash, debit or credit, or e-transfer.

*100% of the money raised will go to my Mom.

*You may take purchased artwork home with you, if you purchase in gallery.

*Absentee purchases can be shipped to the purchaser at their expense.

*Please note that the bidding will close precisely at 3pm. I will do my best to update the current bids on my website.
