The evening will open with a champagne reception and live music before moving onto the serious business of purchasing art. All the exhibited art is available for sale by auction on the opening night with proceedings being led by John de Vere White. Not only will collectors be making an investment in contemporary art but the proceeds will be shared with the Irish Charity Aware. Do you know that one person in three in Ireland will suffer a depressive episode in their lifetime? Aware makes a valuable contribution to Irish society by supporting those affected by depression and its worst effects.
All of the artists in A Moment in Time have been carefully selected on the basis of their very specific, well-defined styles. Alongside the stalwarts of Irish and international painting are the new generation who are forging a painterly language that is entirely fresh, edgy and original. Art buyers with a discerning eye can, in the style of Charles Saatchi, model a collection of rising young painters or opt for an immediate high-return investment in a leading figure. For some of the international names in A Moment in Time exhibiting in Ireland represents a new departure. With such an exciting mix of artists there will be something for the beginner and seasoned collector alike!
The gala evening and auction will be held on Tuesday 6th December. For further information watch this space!
