The Brain Injury Association of P.E.I. is auctioning off art the organization featured in its 2016 calendar.

The art was donated by Island artists and can be viewed at the Confederation Court Mall Saturday.

Director Kenneth Murnaghan said the donations will help with the work the non-profit organization does around prevention and education as well as with brain injury survivors. 

"They're not able to access services that they need. And we're helping them to, to be able to reach those services," said Murnaghan.

Those interested in bidding on the art can go to the association's Facebook page.
