YOU ARE INVITED!

Art-Show-2017-Back-webThe 8th Annual TSCBF Art Show Fundraiser, November 2nd
The Taylor Statten Camping Bursary Fund is pleased to invite you to our 8th Annual Art Show and Sale “Far and Wide. The event is being held at the Storys Building in Toronto, on Thursday, November 2nd. The show features 35 Canadian artists – from painters to sculptors to multimedia artists – with the work on display having been inspired in some way by Ontario’s shapes and sizes, both from the province’s cities and towns to its landscapes and great outdoor spaces, responding to it and celebrating it.
The featured artists – among them Steve McDonald, David Marshak, and Elzbieta Krawecka – have hundreds of shows between them from across North America, Central America, Asia, and Europe.
Among the individuals and institutions holding their work are: The Royal family, Royal St. George’s College, TD Bank, The Molson Family, ScotiaBank, The Weston Family, Gord Downie, The Government of Ontario Art Collection, the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, Sarah Harmer, and BMO.
Last year’s show had over 300 attendees, generated over $25,000 in art sales, and most importantly, raised $21,000.00 to send deserving children to summer camps across Canada!
We are proud to report that the Fund helped finance memorable summers for 55 campers in 2016 at a cost of $105k – both double our historical averages – at camps in Ontario, Quebec, and Alberta. Over our 40+ years of sending kids to camp we are proud to report that we have helped fund over 1100 summer camp experiences and we are working hard to ensure there are another 1100 to come.
Please see the attached invitation for more information. We will be sharing pieces of work that will appear in the show in the coming days via Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/tscbf/) and Instagram (@tscbf) , www.tscbf.com as well.
