Bentwood Box Charity Auction

Lattimer Gallery is joining forces with 20 Indigenous artists from across British Columbia to raise money for the Urban Native Youth Association (UNYA). The exhibition brings together some of the country's foremost Indigenous artists, including Don Yeomans and Shawn Hunt.

Each artist in the exhibition begins with a blank bentwood box, which they take and transform into a work of art in their own distinctive styles. Finished work is displayed at Lattimer Gallery from Nov. 18th, and people can make bids on each of the pieces until the closing reception on Dec. 2nd.

100% of the funds raised through this event go towards providing much-needed programs and services to urban Indigenous youth in Vancouver, creating opportunities through over 20 programming, from alternative schools, housing support and a health clinic, to arts, employment training, sports and rec, and much more.
