Online bidding is open now for the 'Home is Where the Heart is' auction, raising money to fund the work of children’s charity Arms Around the Child, to build a home for HIV+ orphans in Jaipur, India.
You can see the all of the works created and donated in an exhibition at Fiat Chrysler Motor Village, Marylebone, London from November 9th - 16th with opening hours of 9am to 5pm, and you can bid online by clicking here.
Curated by Lee Sharrock in association with Monica Colussi, 'Home is Where the Heart is' includes artwork by Sir Peter Blake, The House of Fairy Tales, Gavin Turk, David Byrne, Pure Evil, Hassan Hajjai, Nancy Fouts, Hannah Matthews, Jimmy Galvin and many more artists including myself.
Art created by some of the orphans in India will also go under the hammer, and you can read more here about my trip to Jaipur last year to help them with their paintings as a committee member of the Art Around the Child initiative.
The auction itself will be held at an invitation-only evening on Thursday November 16th from 7pm at the Motor Village with former Christie’s International Director of Auctioneering Hugh Edmeades chairing it. During the live and silent auction drinks will be provided compliments of Bering Ice Vodka, McGuigan Wines and Pistonhead.
Fiat Chrysler Motor Village Marylebone is located at 105 Wigmore Street, W1U 1QY. For more about the exhibition and auction go to armsaroundthechild.org/art-around-child-art-auction.
