Charity art auction TODAY!

I feel incredibly privileged to have been asked by the esteemed Ryszard Rybicki to be the auctioneer for The Green Horse Art fundraising event, organised by Ryszard and his wife Maria.  The auction is to be held today, Thursday 3rd April at the Mary Ward House in Bloomsbury.   There are still a few spaces left so if you want to come along here are the details.

Entry is free, and doors open from 6.30pm with the auction commencing at 7.30pm.  You will even be given some complimentary bubbly to help loosen the grip on your wallet!   Or for those who don’t wish to participate in the auction but still want to join in the fun of the evening, there will also be a raffle where you can have the chance of winning some of the art on display too.  Everyone is welcome.

The venue is fascinating, the art is beautiful and diverse and all the money raised from the evening will go to The Children’s Trust – the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury.  Thirty pieces of art have been kindly donated by the artists and range in size, style and medium so there is something for every taste.

To find the Mary Ward House click here

Mary Ward House, a Grade I listed building, was designed as a settlement and built in 1897. The founder of the settlement was Mary Ward, a distinguished Victorian novelist who signed her books as Mrs Humphry Ward.  Apart from her successful writing career Mrs Ward was also a leading social worker and promoter of equalisation in the society.

The venue which is now a conference and exhibition centre has a long history of social work. It was in this building that the Play Centres started as well as the first school for disabled children was founded. Because of this strong connection between the auction venue and the fundraising beneficiary it is the perfect location for an event of this kind.

We want people to relax, have fun, and if you fall in love with the art – which you will – then please heartily bid away!  You’ll be lining your wall, your life and your heart with something that will give you eternal pleasure – as well as helping the ever grateful staff and children of The Children’s Trust.   Even if you don’t fancy bidding, please just come along and enjoy the experience, meet new people and be introduced to some established and new international artists.  Thank you – we look forward to welcoming you tomorrow night x
