Picture The Cure

Pic­ture The Cure is an annu­al event ben­e­fit­ing the Cana­di­an Can­cer Soci­ety ini­ti­at­ed by Iri­na Soui­ki in 2005. This year’s event show­cas­es over 200 pic­tures from more than 80 par­tic­i­pat­ing artists from Cana­da and abroad and takes place in the Steam Whis­tle Brewery’s Round­house Gallery in Toron­to (right across the CN Tow­er, on the south side) from July 4 to July 30. In the clos­ing event, all of the pic­tures in the gallery will be auc­tioned off and all the pro­ceeds will go to the Cana­di­an Can­cer Soci­ety. Admis­sion to the open­ing event (starts at 6pm tomor­row) and every day through­out the event (noon to 6pm on Mon­day to Sat­ur­day, noon to 5pm on Sun­day) is free. Admis­sion to the clos­ing event (July 30, starts at 7pm) is $15 at the door and includes a free drink and a tour of the brew­ery.

That said, I will have two pic­tures hang­ing in the gallery and avail­able for auc­tion (1, 2). I will also have one pic­ture in the cat­a­logue avail­able for sale (not for auc­tion) and is priced at $40 (12×18 print, unmat­ted and unframed, pro­ceeds go to the Cana­di­an Can­cer Soci­ety). So, if you live in Toron­to or hap­pen to be in the Toron­to area this month, do check out the event and help us reach the fundrais­ing goal set at $10,000! It’s all for a good cause. I don’t know when Troy and I will be there but we will be there for sure some time this month.

You know, we have dri­ven so far out East in our hon­ey­moon, up to the fur­thest end of Nova Sco­tia, and yet Toron­to seems so far away from here even though in actu­al­i­ty, it’s only about an hour dri­ve. Damn you, Toron­to traf­fic! :)
