PRESS RELEASE | Pound For Pound: Heavyweight Works By Fight To End Cancer Artists


For Immediate Release. Toronto, Ontario, Canada. April 1, 2019  ~
The Fight To End Cancer (FTEC), in partnership with Steam Whistle Brewing, is excited to announce the inaugural photography and art exhibit featuring the works of various artists who have contributed their time and talent to promoting the Fight To End Cancer.

The show, entitled “Pound for Pound: Heavyweight works by FTEC artists” will run from May 7th until May 31st in the Steam Whistle gallery. 

The exhibit will kickoff with an opening night event in the gallery on Tuesday, May 7th starting at 7:00PM.  Approximately 30 pieces will be on display and for sale in the gallery with all proceeds going to the Fight to End Cancer benefiting The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

The gallery can accommodate 200 people so be sure to register early if you would like to attend.  The gallery is open Monday-Saturday 11am – 6pm and Sundays 11am – 5pm, if you are unable to make the opening night event.  All pieces sold will remain on display for the duration of the exhibit.  You will also be able to purchase other pieces through the Fight to End Cancer website.

The show’s curator is FTEC2019’s official campaign photographer, Spencer Wynn.  A story teller at heart, Spencer’s career has taken him to extremes. Using his skills as a visual journalist, designer and photographer, Wynn has lived the stories he tells saying, “ One can only truly tell a story of a people or culture if you have lived with the people or in the culture”.  Spencer is a creative person, always looking to push himself and his skills in order to stay current with technology and learn more about the diversity around him.  Spencer shoots with the Fujifilm X-Series mirrorless cameras for their excellent image quality as well as their smaller form factor.

We’re proud to announce Fujifilm as the official photo printing partner for the Fight To End Cancer.  Since the 1930’s, Fujifilm has been developing film technology and suppling the world with its legendary film stock.  Over the past 65 years, Fujifilm papers have been used to create, document and preserve moments in world events and in people’s lives.  The partnership is a perfect match, as we forge forward, helping to build incredible memories and a cancer free future.

About Steam Whistle | visit online

The Steam Whistle story begins in the spring of 1998 with three friends on a canoe trip through Ontario’s beautiful heartland.

Greg Taylor, Cam Heaps and Greg Cromwell had been colleagues at one of Canada’s premier microbreweries in the late 1980’s and 90’s, before it was bought out by a national brewer and closed down, like so many of Ontario’s independent breweries.  As they sat around the campfire, the self-named “Three Fired Guys” dreamed of running their own brewery one day—one that would make a Pilsner to compete with the best in the world.

Over the past two decades, Steam Whistle has grown from a dream hatched by the fireside into one of Canada’s largest and most beloved independent breweries.  But our Founders’ vision of creating a Pilsner Canadians can be proud of is still the driving force behind why we show up every day.
