C&C Artists support art auction fundraiser this February/March
As you will be aware the arts have been severely hit during the frequent lockdowns we have experienced this year as a result of the pandemic. Unfortunately theatres continue to remain dark and museums and galleries closed just at the moment people need to be taken elsewhere in their thoughts. So it is very much appreciated that a small selection of East Anglian artists, many of whom we currently work with, have chosen this moment to reveal their altruistic side and donate their artwork in support of East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH), in aid of a fundraising auction for an art therapy program.
You may preview the auction lots on the links here. The auction goes live at 9am on Thursday 25th February and runs until 12 noon Saturday 6th March. You can register and follow the auction on the follow link: Cheffins Fine Art | Fine Art Valuations | Fine Art Auctions
Charities like EACH that rely on a revenue stream through their retail outlets have seen a reduction in their income at the very moment their costs have dramatically increased, as demand has driven extra provision of vital relief. In EACH's case - to hard pressed parents of children with often complex disabilities. So this auction represents a welcome opportunity to replenish their coffers. C&C supported EACH's ambitious fundraising target - by producing a campaign brochure for The Nook Appeal (2016) and again along side the Damien Hirst exhibition when we were in the Stables at Houghton Hall, Norfolk (2018).
The auction has been organised by EACH and fine art dealer Davina Barber, and it will be coordinated online by the Cambridge-based fine art auctioneers Cheffins. There is a free digital catalogue compiled by EACH as a download using this link: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1584/6645/files/Art_Auction_Catalogue.pdf?v=1612121049
