TORONTO - Oct. 30, 2019 - PRLog -- The Gift of Art will feature more than 400 original works in a wide range of styles, by 15 established Toronto artists. This is a great opportunity to find a unique gift for your special someone.  The show opens Thursday November 7 from 6-9pm, continues Friday Nov 8 from 6-9pm and Sat and Sun from noon to 6pm.

"Bringing the Gift of Art to the community and at the same time sharing 10% of our sales proceeds with those less fortunate, seemed to be a perfect way to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season", said John Presseault, Lead Organizer and Toronto Artist.

"We are incredibly grateful to the artists in the 501 Alliance group for their support - especially at this time of year when no one should be left out in the cold", said Carly Friesen, Volunteer and Events Manager.
