Art with Heart 2011, one of Casey House’s largest fundraising events, takes place at The Carlu on Tuesday, October 18, 2011. The auction features some of the finest Canadian art from both established and emerging artists. In past years, works from internationally-acclaimed photographer Edward Burtynsky and painter James Lahey have been up for bid. Works by Attila Richard Lukacs, whose work is on exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario and is also part of Elton John’s private collection, have also been sold in the auction. Works offered for sale have estimated values from $800 to over $20,000, which attracts many categories of buyers. This year, 30 limited editions of John Hartman’s Toronto From Above the Don River, 2011 will be sold for $2,500. Tickets for the event are $150 and include a reception with gourmet food.
