Toronto’s Casey House held Art With Heart, its annual contemporary art auction and reception on October 6, 2015 at Toronto’s luxurious Carlu, raising essential funds so that it can provide inspired HIV/AIDS care.  The funds will be used by Casey House’s for its services, including sending skilled teams of registered nurses and workers into clients’ homes, providing rehabilitative care and recreation therapy at the hospice, and bringing specialized HIV nursing care via partner clinics to marginalized people who lack access to treatment. The funds donated enabled additional services at Casey House to address the complex health needs and isolation that many clients experience.

“Art With Heart is Casey House’s biggest single fundraiser each year. We are incredibly excited to have it back once again with even more remarkable art for art collectors and art lovers alike.” says Steven Endicott, Chief Development Officer, Casey House. “With the number of people living with HIV/AIDS in Toronto alone increasing, Casey House is enormously grateful for the funds that have been raised each year to allow it to continue providing inspired HIV/AIDS care for those who need it most.”

This year’s Art With Heart featured Gallery of Patrons Limited Edition work by Canadian artist Mark Clintberg. Mr. Clintberg’s piece, Our Arrangement depicts two figures that resemble anchors. Their proximity and quantity are used to represent a series of arrangements or agreements between two or more parties i.e. in Art with Heart, the piece will signify two agreements: one between the artist and the purchaser and the other between the artist and Casey House.

Art With Heart has consistently promoted Canadian contemporary art. A curatorial committee of prominent artists, curators and art collectors selected works by emerging and established Canadian artists with the generous support of the artists and galleries across the country. From oil on canvas to digital photography, supporters and art collectors alike were drawn not only to support the worthy cause but to the incredible work being featured this year. Over 80 artists were featured in this year’s auction, including Douglas Coupland, Kim Dorland, Erik Olson.  As well as showcasing the works of established Canadian artists, Art With Heart supports emerging artists who continue to push boundaries and influence change.
Since its inception, Art With Heart, over has been raised over $6.2 million with the generous bids and donations from Casey House’s supporters, donors and art lovers.
