Our current exhibiting artist, Odette Farrell, is raffling a beautiful work to raise money for the charity, Help Refugees. Tickets are £20 and all proceeds go straight to charity.
Odette Farrell says,
‘MIGRATION ABSTRACTS explores the lost, the sorrow, the growth, the opportunities presented. This is a topic close to my heart and something I feel very passionately about. In light of this, and the tragic events in Syria and Calais I have decided to donate one of my Migration Abstract works to support the “Help Refugees” charity.’
Help Refugees is a grassroots organisation that began in North London in the summer of 2015. They act fast to change lives, with your donations going directly to the people who need it most.
Each £20 ticket will give you a chance to take home “PINKY STONE PATH”, a diptych inspired by Odette Farrell’s walk to Santiago de Compostela.
‘Last year I was able to go over 500km of St James way, during the journey I encountered many types of roads, the more difficult ones were stone paths. When you are a migrant, many times you think how lucky (Pink) you are because you were able to leave your dangerous homeland with the hope of a better life. But our path as a migrant is never smooth it is always a stone path.’
This oil has been valued at £2,000. Feel free to buy multiple tickets! For more information or to purchase a raffle ticket contact email@example.com
