In Feb and March just gone a group of us here in New Horizon Hub with the help of facilitator Bernadette entered some postcard size paintings into the Jack and Jill Incognito Art Project.
The project had 1500 original, miniature art pieces, donated to the charity by over 1000 artists from around the country and overseas, which were on sale on a first come first served basis for €50 each in The Solomon Gallery, Dublin (beside the Westbury Hotel) from 21st to 25th April, offering purchasers a chance to secure a valuable piece of art worth thousands of euro from one of the 50 well-known artists involved. As the name Incognito suggests, each artist’s identity was top secret and was not revealed until after the sale.
The Project was a huge success, making over €75,000 for the Jack and Jill Charity. They provide support and direct funding, to families of children with brain damage up to the age of 4 who suffer severe intellectual and physical developmental delay.
The sale was a huge success and made over €75,000. We were delighted to be part of this project and to know people were queuing to buy our art made it even more exciting! What a contribution our little postcards made to these families has put a smile on our faces.
