Artists get together to help Haiti Earthquake Appeal
Kilkenny-based artist Niamh Curry has persuaded some 30 fellow artists, including internationally renowned Gottfried Helnwein and Bob Dixon, to donate works for an exhibition in The Narrow Space Gallery, Clonmel, Co Tipperary, with all proceeds going to GOAL's Haiti Earthquake Appeal.
The exhibition opens at 8pm on Friday, February 19, 2010. With thanks to the support of sponsors; Super Valu, Artisan Frames, Swift Print, Niamh’s, The Wine Buff Clonmel, Dowlings Print Shop, Mr Bumbles, Superquinn and The Narrow Space Gallery, all proceeds from all sales will go directly to GOAL.
The opening night promises to be a glitzy affair, with wine, light refreshments and finger food. A raffle will also be held for a 60” long signed and framed image of Glen Hansard by photographer Bob Dixon - an excellent chance to get a stunning artwork for the price of a raffle ticket! Tickets will be available to buy in the Narrow Space Gallery. If you cannot attend on the night but would still like to be in with a chance of winning this beautiful piece, contact Claire McConnell through www.bobdixonphotography.com and payment can be made through paypal. Spot prizes will also be awarded!
GOAL is an international, Irish founded, charity. For over 30 years they have dedicated themselves to helping those most in need across the developing world. They have responded to almost every man-made disaster since their foundation in 1977. Hours after the earthquake struck in Haiti on January 12, a Goal team was on the ground and the aid agency is continuing to deliver aid to those most affected by the tragedy. As the sole benefactor, you can be assured that all money raised in the exhibition will go directly to the people who need it most in Haiti.
For further information visit www.exhibitionforgoal.ie. The exhibition will run until March 12, 2010, and the draw for the raffle will take place on that date.
The gallery opens from Tuesday to Saturday from 10.30am until 5.30pm. Admission is free and everyone is encouraged to go in and see the work of these 30 generous artists.
