Event Partners

About Kathryn Tremblay

Kathryn Tremblay is the CEO and Co-Founder of Altis Recruitment, one of Canada’s largest independent recruitment firms. She purchased all artworks for this fundraising initiative, held in memory of her late husband and Altis co-founder Toni Guimaraes, who was treated for advanced prostate cancer at The Ottawa Hospital. He eventually passed away from his illness in 2016. To honour the artists featured, each was paid in full for their artwork.

About Studio Sixty Six

Special thanks to Carrie Colton, Gallery Principal at Studio Sixty Six, and her team, who volunteered their time and expertise to choose each piece with care, working alongside curators at Wall Space and Galerie St-Laurent + Hill. This is an especially important initiative for Carrie, whose son has been treated for a chronic illness at The Ottawa Hospital for the past 13 years. All three participating galleries discounted their professional fees as a donation to this important cause.
