Art Fundraiser in Aid of Ukraine

I have a work in this online exhibition organised by the Bankside Gallery.

Art Fundraiser in aid of Ukraine
Online Exhibition | 16 – 23 March

In response to the horrific events unfolding in Ukraine, we have launched an online art fundraiser with 100% of the proceeds going to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

This exhibition is made up of a brilliant selection of paintings and original prints, all of which have been very generously donated by artists of the Royal Watercolour Society (RWS) and Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers (RE).

We hope that you enjoy this collection and find an artwork to treasure, while supporting such an important cause.

FUNDRAISER RAFFLE – DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal

Gallagher and Turner are fundraising to support the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal via Just Giving www.justgiving.com/fundraising/GallagherandTurner 

In this time when families are being torn apart, a time of such great courage in the face of death and destruction, art seems such a frivolity. Creativity, however, is one of the things that makes us human, it allows us to communicate and to celebrate our power in the face of oppression. We would like to make it a practical force for good and use it to raise desperately needed aid funding in this European humanitarian crisis.

All details on their webpage here.

I’ve donated Red Villa, Burano, Venice, watercolour.

‘This exhibition of works by Members of the Royal Watercolour Society showcases paintings created in the very recent present alongside those at the earliest points in their career, and everything in between. The display promises to provide visitors with a rare insight into the development of each artist’s creative output, as well as the opportunity to take a piece of work home, whether from now or then.’

THEY CAN’T CANCEL SPRING…

I have four works in this show, including Boulevard, illustrated below.

Artworks will be available from 11am on Thursday 18th March.

The RWS home at Bankside Gallery is sadly temporarily closed due to government restrictions and so this exhibition will take place online. As with all RWS exhibitions all artworks are original paintings and available to browse and buy, and in this particular circumstance, will be delivered by the artist directly to your door.
