Photogs Hold Fundraiser for Art Buyer Heather Morton Feb. 5

Andrew Hetherington, Andy Anderson, Chris Buck, Mark Zibert, George Simhoni and Derek Shapton are among the more than 40 photographers who have contributed to the silent print auction to be held February 5 to raise money for Heather Morton, the freelance art buyer and popular blogger. In the fall, Morton began two years of chemotherapy for fibromatosis, an aggressive, non-malignant sarcoma.

The event will take place at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto, Morton’s home town, on February 5 at 7pm. Photographers Naomi Harris, Daniel Ehrenworth and Brett Gundlock will be showing images from recent projects, and there will also be a raffle for dozens of prizes. Sponsors include Pikto, Agency Access, Westside Studio, Katarina Marinic and others (a full list of sponsors, a look at some of the images for sale and more information can be found on Morton’s blog, where friends and colleagues have been helping with postings).

Tickets are $10, and available via PayPal on Morton’s site to anyone who wants to attend (or just support this effort from afar).
