Vancouver Sun: Unite with Art


Picture Perfect: Julie Lee and Gabryel Harrison

There'll be much worthwhile stuff to bid on when Alison Lawton chairs the Unite With Art gala at the Rocky Mountaineer station June 21. The gala will benefit UNICEF Canada's Unite for Children, Unite Against AIDS campaign. A preview ran at the Auto One dealership's Trunk Gallery Thursday, when Trunk president Cecilia Jette and UWA executive director-curator Julie Lee showed works by the gala's 40 contributing artists, including Michael Abraham, Andrea Bax, Fred Herzog, Tiko Kerr and George Vergette.
Gabryel Harrison showed one of the $6,000 works she creates by reproducing self-written poems in Braille, then layering them with gold leaf and oil paint.
