Myself and fellow Florence Trust Residency Artists have donated work to this great cause happening on Friday 8th April at Fold Gallery, near London Fields.
Silent Art Auction for Japan Relief
We need your help! Please come out and show your support for the victims of Japan!
Recent earthquakes, a tsunami and the ongoing Fukushima nuclear power Plant has devastated Japan and emotionally scared the millions who live there. The cleanup and recovery in Japan has only just begun but the country still has a long way to go before they can move on from these recent events.
They need our help more than ever. If only we could all fly over to bring them potable water, food and medical supplies, as well as help them with the daunting cleanup they still face.
Visiting Japan at this time is unrealistic for most of us. This raises the question: What can we do as Art Lovers to help? One thing we can do from London is hold a fundraiser. Even a small amount can help those who have lost their homes, their family members, their friends and their memories. With the support of London-based artists and Art Lovers we CAN do something.
In response to the crisis taking place in Japan, FOLD Gallery London will be holding a silent art auction on the 8th April 2011 from 6pm
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the British Red Cross, Japan Tsunami Appeal: Japan Relief which is helping earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan. Established and emerging London-based artists have generously contributed artwork to FOLD Gallery London’s art auction. Artists include Edward Allington, Sarah Pickering and many more.
For one night, you will have the opportunity to bid and take home original works of art donated by passionate artists! Come out, show your support and have fun!
Bids will start at £20 (those who just HAVE to have it can “Buy Now!” for £100)

19.45 close bidding
20.00 successful bidder make donation / handing over the work to successful bidder
