Ted Fullerton & Bau-Xi Gallery fundraise in support of Food Banks Canada
To combat food/financial insecurity in the wake of the coronavirus artists have been collectively engaged in events with fundraising strategies to assist non-profit organizations. To this end, Bau-Xi Gallery and gallery artist, Ted Fullerton, will be collaborating on a fundraising event.
During the Covid-19 stay at home advisory, Ted Fullerton completed 30 mixed media drawings over a 10-day period that are intended as an optimistic engagement and consideration of hope during a time of unparalleled global crisis. They are symbolically associated with the notion of the Greek myth and folklore of the Phoenix who obtains new life by rising from the ashes and regenerates. This movement of drawings is referred to by the artist as, Dreaming of a Phoenix from the Flames – in 20/20. They were done as a stream of consciousness – a laconic expression using wet and dry materials on paper that are visually subtle as well as expressively bold.
All funds raised from the sale of the 30 drawings, as part of Dreaming of a Phoenix from the Flames – in 20/20, will be donated to Food Banks Canada. An open financial offer can be made for a single drawing, a selected few, or the entire suite of 30 drawings.
