Over the past few months we have been lucky enough to be involved in not 1 but 2 charity events with artist Kerry Darlington.
The first event was a charity dinner and auction with the Rainbow Trust, a charity which we here at Wyecliffe have supported for many years. The Rainbow Trust is a Surrey based charity that provides nationwide support for terminally ill children and their families. For the past 5 years, with the help of Lusso Homes, they have held an annual charity golf day at Wentworth Golf Club which we at Wyecliffe have attended since it begun (although only for the evening entertainment as Ben is not much of a golfer!). The event has raised over £300,000 and we are incredibly proud to be invited every year.
This year along with Kerry we donated a special edition of her ‘Tree of Life – Gold’ Unique Edition for the evening auction. The piece raised £6,000!
The second event, for the charity UK Youth was a Gala Dinner and Auction at the renowned restaurant Boisdale of Canary Wharf.
Both gallery director Ben and Kerry Darlington attended the event along with the charity’s President and Legendary Formula One champion Nigel Mansell CBE.
UK Youth is a leading national charity that reaches 693,000 young people every year through the largest network of youth clubs and projects. They support young people through a range of innovative programmes to gain life-skills that build confidence.
For the auction Kerry kindly donated an original based on her ‘Tree of Life – Gold’. The piece sold for an incredible £14,000!
Immerse yourself in holographic illusion in Becky Smith’s intriguing new collection ‘New Perspectives’. A collision of art and science, this progressive young artist presents unique visions of the universe.
Sleeping Beauty is the first circular portrait edition by Kerry Darlington. Drawing inspiration from the classic tale by the Brothers Grimm following from the success of last years piece in the Folklore collection Goldilocks.
