Tomorrow night Mercer Union hosts the second iteration of a fundraiser called Mercer Multiplier. Earlier in the year the gallery invited twenty-five artists to submit a digital file which they then had printed at Toronto Image Works, in editions of five. At least one artist contributed unique drawings.
Tickets are priced at $175 each, which entitles the buyer to one of the editions. The preview begins at 6pm, and at 7:00, the draw is held, which determines the order of selection. Those hoping to improve their chances of 'first pick' are encouraged to purchase a Collector 3 Pack for $500.
Along with TIW, the event is sponsored by Superframe, who are offering substantial discounts on having the works framed, along with a donation to the gallery.
Participating artists include: Diane Borsato, FASTWÜRMS, Public Studio, Derek Liddington, Laurie Kang, Jennifer Rose Sciarrino, Krista Buecking, Jon Sasaki, Zin Taylor, Liz Knox, Jean-Paul Kelly, Alvin Luong, Maggie Groat, Terrarea (Janis Demkiw, Emily Hogg, Olia Mishchenko), Lorna Mills, Oliver Pauk, Jillian K Ross, Lili Huston-Herterich, Daniel Barrow, Geoffrey Pugen, Jason Gowans, Marla Hlady, and Svea Ferguson.
To purchase tickets call 416.536.1519.
