Art Gems at Berkeley Church was a chance to view over forty artworks in the Art Gems Live Auction Collection, created by some of Canada’s most established and promising emerging artists. Guests had an opportunity to bid on thirty artworks in the Art Gems Silent Auction, created by our guest celebrity artists and Creative Works Studio members.

“Art Gems celebrates its 8th anniversary with Art Gems ’14, the annual fundraising art auction in support of Creative Works Studio. Since 2007, your generosity and support has enabled Art Gems to raise over $540,000 for this life-changing mental health outreach program in downtown Toronto. Together we are making positive change in the lives of the many Studio members, who, through this occupational therapy based program, experience healing, increased self-esteem and the return of important life skills through their participation in the arts.” http://www.creativeartgems.ca/index.php?id=2
