Fine Art Fundraisers

The Sunnybrook Gift Shop works closely with a number of volunteer-run programs in order to help raise funds for our Patient Care initiatives throughout our hospitals.

Quite a few of them are driven towards providing beautiful artwork for everyone, such as:


Sunnybrook Golden Jubilee Art Show

Golden Jubilee: Celebrating 50+1 Years of Fine Arts at Sunnybrook


The Fine Arts program at Sunnybrook started 51 years ago. Not much is known about the early years of the program, but what is well known is the major contribution that was made by Daphne and Stan Tully who led the program for well over 20 years until they handed over the reins almost 9 years ago. Over the years people passing along the main corridor have really enjoyed the chance to view art on the otherwise rather drab walls.

Eighteen months ago plans were well advanced to celebrate the 50th Anniversary by putting on a special art show, but the Covid pandemic put a stop to that, as it did to so many other things. In fact, the show that had already been hung in February 2020 prior to the Covid onslaught had to remain in place until it was finally closed in August 2021, the longest running show in the history of Sunnybrook Fine Arts!

Now at last we are able to put together a new display of art. Covid restrictions remain tight, and mean that we are not able to take in paintings and hang them on the walls. Instead we will do as many other art organisations have had to do, and run this as an on-line show, but with the added touch that colour prints of the work will be shown on the walls where the real art work would normally appear. The paintings are by artists who have proved to be very popular over the years, and the originals all are available for viewing and purchase online here.

This Golden Jubilee Show will run until January 7, 2022, and is dedicated to the memory of Daphne and Stan Tully.




Fine Art Sales

Fine Art Sales


Along the main corridor of the First Floor of our Bayview campus, there are several bars with numerous beautiful artworks on display. Each piece of art can be purchased by removing its information card from the wall and bringing it to the M1 Gift Shop.

The Fine Art Sales are organized by a handful of dedicated volunteers, who have made arrangements with several art groups in the General Toronto Area. Every four to six weeks, old paintings are taken down and returned to their groups, and a new group will bring their paintings to be hung for sale.

A large portion of each sale goes back towards the artists, with only a small commission given to the hospital to support patient care.

Can I Sell My Paintings In The Art Show?
At this time, we are only able to display and sell the paintings from our designated Art Groups.

Fine Art Heritage Cards

Sunnybrook Heritage Greeting Cards

Our sets of greeting cards depict a number of iconic Sunnybrook buildings, all beautifully painted by the late Daphne Tully, an inspirational former volunteer of Sunnybrook.

In addition, holiday cards can also be purchased once a year.

These holiday cards are adorned with prints of winter- and holiday-themed paintings done by artists from our year-round Fine Arts Sales. These same paintings will also go on sale in the First Floor Corridor during the last sale of each year, so keep an eye out!

Cards can be purchased in sets of ten in our Gift Shops and here on our website.


Sealed Bid Art Auctions

In various areas around the hospital, you will find lovely prints of gorgeous artworks, arranged on a peculiar sort of easel.

Each of these easels includes a number of bidding ballots, pencils, and a slot to submit your bid, as well as a sign advising of the bidding period. Anyone may enter a bid on an art piece. At the end of the bidding period, bids will be collected and the highest bids will be contacted to retrieve their new art piece!

The Sealed Bid auctions are organized and run by Don Ross of ManorHill Fine Art. A portion of the proceeds from each art auction goes towards our Patient Care initiatives.
