Just Art auction for Iranian refugee family an opportunity to give ‘a gift with meaning’

A family of recently arrived refugees from Iran is learning that art is vitally important to any new home, not because something is needed to go on the walls but because, in their case, art in a sense “is” the walls.
Art will help put a roof over their heads and shelter around their sides and keep them warm through a cold Canadian winter.
The people in this city who paint and create and sculpt and so forth are artists because of the way they see and are they ever seeing this holiday season, seeing to the needs, those critical first-year needs, that refugee families find themselves facing as they adjust to a new life. Housing, health care, language classes to name a few.
