Project 31: Stunning artworks up for auction in support of student scholarships and opportunities

 

Tuesday, March 5, 2013 - 5:30pm

Project 31 fundraiser features works by OCAD University faculty Barbara Astman, Ian Carr-Harris, Cathy Daley, Gary Taxali, John Scott and many others

(Toronto—March 5, 2013) An unparalleled collection of highly collectable artworks by OCAD University’s award-winning faculty and invited guests is up for auction later this month at Project 31, an annual live auction in support of student scholarships and opportunities. The auction takes place on Wednesday, March 27 with the artwork preview beginning at 6 p.m.

Featuring stunning paintings, photography, limited edition prints, sculpture, textiles and fibre, illustration, jewellery and digital media, Project 31 pairs the support of donating faculty members with specific areas of need at the university, such as program-specific scholarships, awards or bursaries for students, the university’s library and Learning Zone, the Florence Off-Campus Studies Program, additional hours with live models, or investments of new equipment for specific programs. Faculty members choose which area of need they wish to support through the sale of their donated work.

Budding and established art collectors alike can expect to score great buys, with works selling very affordably, starting around a few hundred dollars. Through the auction, patrons are able to access work by OCAD U’s award-winning faculty members — a pool of creative talent found nowhere else in Canada — while enriching the learning experience for the next generation of artists and designers.

Artworks available by:
Sandra Altwerger, Barbara Astman, Philippe Blanchard, Ian Carr-Harris, Jack Cassady, David Clarkson, Cathy Daley, Judith Doyle, Eva Ennist, Spencer J. Harrison, April Hickox, Daniel P. Izzard; Jesse Colin Jackson & Tori Foster, Mark Jaroszewicz, Simone Jones, Chung-Im Kim, Anda Kubis, JJ Lee, Ginette Legaré, Jennifer Long, Hugh Martin, Robert K.E. Mitchell, Iza Mokrosz, Linda Montgomery, Sarah Nind, Doug Panton, David Pellettier, Gord Peteran, Geoffrey Pugen, Diane Pugen, Nicholas Pye, John Scott, Rosalie Sharp, Vlad Spicanovic, Peter Sramek, Gary Taxali, Dannielle Tegeder, Natalie Waldburger and Sylvia Whitton.

Project 31 is generously sponsored by Delaney Capital Management, Borden Ladner Gervais, First Capital Realty and Canadian Art, with support from Akau Framing and Art Inc., Steamwhistle Brewing and Waddingtons.
