     Silent Auction with portion of proceeds to benefit the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario. Opening reception and preview: Sunday, February 7, 2~4PM. Participate in this exciting opportunity to win valuable art for the month of February!
     Janny Fraser, Joyce Honsberger, George Langbroek, Mori McCrae, Michelle Teitsma, Sandy Middleton, Robyn Kennedy, Jan Yates, the artists and owners of the Jordan Art Gallery, have created works from their hearts and artistic souls for this worthy event.  ‘Heart to Heart’ is an exhibition and auction highlighting the love and generosity of spirit symbolized by Valentine’s Day.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario encourages Canadians to make heart-healthy choices. Just as important, they campaign government as well as the public and private sector to develop policies and programs to support healthy communities and reduce inequalities that negatively affect the health and well being of Canadians. A labour of love, indeed.
     An exquisite example of artwork created for this event can be found in a pin made by jewelry artist Robyn Kennedy: Titled ‘True Blue’, the sterling silver and gold Heart Brooch/Pin was created exclusively for this exhibition. Heart-shaped ‘True Blue’ was lovingly hand crafted in sterling silver with 14 karat yellow gold accents and highlighted by a 5mm round, brilliant cut Paradise Blue genuine Topaz gemstone set in a bezel setting. The ‘True Blue’ Pendant/Brooch measures 34 x 45mm and has a total weight of 12.3 grams.The starting bid for this stunning piece is $85.
     For the month of February, visitors to the Jordan Art Gallery are welcome to bid on any of the works available for auction. Patrons will also be able to bid online.
     The value of the artwork will be listed and all of the artists have agreed to reduce the price of their work to encourage sales. Patrons will be able to bid and counter bid for the month of February. Each bidder will be assigned a number, to be used upon bidding. If another wishes to bid on the same artwork, the bid will then go up, which adds to the excitement of the show! At the end of the month, all bidders will be contacted to get a ‘last chance’ to place their bid. Closing bids will be called at 4 PM Sunday, February 28. 
    The winners will go home with a great deal on a valuable painting, mixed media work, photograph or jewelry made with love by a local Niagara artist. They will also know that they have contributed to the betterment of the lives of those whose hearts are in need by contributing to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.
