I recently contributed a piece of artwork to an exhibition to fundraise for The National Brain Appeal. The exhibition held at the gallery@oxo, London, presented artists’ visual responses to the title ‘A Letter in Mind’ using just a simple white envelope as a starting point. With submissions from established and emerging names in the worlds of art and design, illustration, graphic design and craft, the envelopes were built in, drawn on, painted, written on, cooked, wired, collaged, sewn and had artworks sealed inside them!
A Great Success
There were 276 entries in total including works from Peter Abrahams, Jo Addison, Kit Boyd, Chris Haughton, Grayson Perry, Elisa Sighicelli, Natasha Kidd, Gill Rocca, Amin Taha and Frank Kiely. The week-long exhibition was a great success and entertained over 1000 visitors. My artwork was amongst the 136 works sold for £80 each and contributed towards the £10,000+ raised for the charity.
A Place For Creation
A Place for Creation is web page to showcase all of the works exhibited as part of ‘A Letter in Mind’ – the site shows which artworks have sold and which are still available. Should you be interested, it is possible to buy the available works via the webpage. The price of each work is £80 and all proceeds will go directly to The National Brain Appeal.
Exhibition dates: Thursday 2 October to Sunday 5 October 2014. 11-6pm.
