Touched By Fire

November 15, 2009

Mood Disorders Association of Ontario announced the third year of the Touched By Fire art show and sale November 26th 2009 at the ROYAL ONTARIO MUSEUM.

Touched By Fire is a great art show celebrating the works of talented artists with mood disorders.  All of the proceeds from the sale of the art go directly to the artists.

It is said that artists with mood disorders are “touched by fire” enabling them to create amazing works of art.

Some of the greatest artists in history were “touched by fire” such as Van Gogh and Georgia O’Keefe and there are many talented artists in our community today who are also “touched by fire”.

November 26th at the Royal Ontario Museum 7-11pm   RSVP to Carlin at:
