A blank canvas offers endless possibilities—even when it’s a handcrafted box. In support of the Urban Native Youth Association, each year Lattimer Gallery gives 20 artists a blank steam-bent box. Last year’s auction saw a stunning showcase of creativity, from carved sterling silver appliqué to brightly coloured chalk and pastels (“Impermanence” by Steve Smith, pictured) and innovative new imaginings of the vessel. Bid on this year’s collection until Dec. 7.
