Art for Tibet Canada Gallery Show and Auction

Saturday, October 15, 2011 - 22:00 to Sunday, October 16, 2011 - 02:30

Two years ago, Students for a Free Tibet’s inaugural ART FOR TIBET in New York City: 50X50 was a phenomenal success. It brought together and showcased established and new artists from all over the world -- including a growing number of outstanding contemporary Tibetan artists. Now we hope to bring this event to Toronto and make ART FOR TIBET Canada into a major art show in its own right.

ART FOR TIBET is an art show, cultural exhibition and fundraiser that will showcase work from a diverse international pool of both established and new artists, including a growing number of outstanding contemporary Tibetan artists. 

Art for Tibet Canada – Online Auction Starts Oct. 7, click here for more information, and artwork will be available for public viewing 1-6pm at Gallery 1313 beginning Oct 6th.

More than 20 acclaimed artists will exhibit art works together in support of the Tibetan freedom struggle on October 15 at Gallery 1313 in Toronto. The first Art for Tibet Canada show will feature top contemporary Tibetan and international artists, including Ang Tsherin Sherpa, Karma Phuntsok, Brian Harris, Tenzin Dorjee, Kalsang Dolma, and much more.

All artwork in the show will be sold via a silent auction on the evening of October 15. 

All proceeds from the event will benefit Students for a Free Tibet Canada, a non-profit organization with Canadian headquarters in Toronto.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
