Heffel’s Fine Art Auction house is offering several great works by some major Canadian artists.

A collection of 142 lots has been revealed and includes some magnificent pieces. Conservative estimates foresee the auction bringing in C$8 million to C$11 million.

Five works by Emily Carr are available, including Totem Poles. The oil on board is one of her most famous works and is expected to fetch around a half million dollars.

The collection also includes five works from Jean Paul Riopelle and three works from much-loved Group of Seven artist Lawren Harris.

Previews are planned for Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto, on Nov. 1, 13 and 22 respectively.  The live auction takes place in Toronto on Nov. 27.



Carmel Kilkenny grew up in Toronto as it was in the early stages of becoming the "most multi-cultural city" in the world.
A year living in Paris, France provided the time and opportunity to study the language, and experience the culture. It also provided a base to visit other European destinations.
Now Carmel makes her home in Montreal, Quebec. Following a degree in Communication Studies and Journalism, Carmel anchored Quebec’s late-night TV newscast, worked in radio, locally and on RCI’s short-waves, and spent some time sharing daily forecasts on a network of radio stations across Canada as a weather specialist.
These days, as a freelance writer-broadcaster, she is lending her voice and writing skills to a number of projects and continuing to share great Canadian stories on Radio Canada International’s website.
