Never Real & Always True will run from March 9th - 21st.
Artists are asked to illustrate how their individual experiences with mental illness have been impacted by social stigma. All artists are welcome regardless of location. Painting, drawing, mixed media, and sculpture are all acceptable mediums.
The event will be held at Northern Contemporary Gallery. A percentage of all profits made by Northern Contemporary Gallery will be donated to the Toronto Distress Centre. Northern Contemporary Gallery will collect a $20 hanging fee for works accepted (one time fee, NOT per piece). As well, we will take a 40% commission on all sales.
The Toronto Distress Centre is a volunteer based organization that provides 24-hour telephone support, 365 days a year, to those experiencing emotional distress or in need of crisis intervention and suicide prevention. The goal is to raise $1000 for the Toronto Distress Centre.
