We are delighted to announce that Lahd Gallery is participating in View 2012, a charity event dedicated to raising money for Marie Curie Cancer Care. View 2012 will consist of two auctions including artwork generously donated by artists to aid Marie Curie. This event is taking place at the prestigious Saatchi Gallery, London, that houses works by some of the biggest names in contemporary art. The Saatchi Gallery has kindly been working with Marie Curie to raise awareness of an incredibly important and beneficial charity.
Marie Curie Cancer Care is one of the foremost charities in aiding cancer sufferers, and the support of this charity is vital in providing quality care for those affected by the disease, and to fund research into treatments and ways to help prevent cancer from afflicting future generations. View 2012 in particular is also providing funding for Marie Curie’s art strategy that aims to use art as a means of improving its hospices.
At the event there will be a silent auction of contemporary art and a live auction of “money-can’t-buy” experiences. Lahd Gallery is very proud to be a member of the Marie Curie Art Event Committee, and several of our artists’ work are being featured in the silent auction. Our artists include Kuwaiti artist Shurooq Amin, Turkish sculptor Ugur Caki, French Arabic calligrapher Julien Breton and Greek/Arabic mystical artist Irini Gonou.
Marie Curie Cancer Care View 2012 was held at Saatchi Gallery, London at 7.30pm on Thursday 4th October 2012.
