The first Montreal Timeraiser is coming up on Thursday, April 12th. I've long been keeping my eye out for Timeraiser to make its Montreal debut.

The winning bidders have a year to finish their volunteer hours and then they get to take the work home. The artists are paid market value for their work upfront, so everyone wins.
I submitted some framed silkscreens that I have on hand and the Timeraiser jury selected my piece 'Hillock':
