Works from Waterford artists to feature in special charity auction
Fifteen works from Waterford artists will be auctioned for charity later this month.
This (above) is one of hundreds of works from all over the world on sale for just €50 – but you won’t know who the artist is until you buy the postcard-sized drawing.
And it may not be an established artist. The items on sale include work by celebrities, such as the Munster rugby squad, Bono and Bruce and Patti Springsteen.
The money raised by the Incognito auction will help the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.
All of the art can be viewed on a website and the online sale will start at 10am on Thursday, May 28.
The original artworks will be sold online on a first-click-first-served basis, with the exciting prospect of acquiring a very valuable piece of art. The artist’s signature will be on the back of the artwork.
“Here’s an opportunity to bag an original piece of art, which might turn out to be worth a lot more than the €50 sale price,” said Bryan Bourke, managing partner of the legal firm William Fry, who are supporting the venture.
Each €50 purchase equates to three hours of specialist home nursing care for one of the 340 Jack & Jill families. The Foundation provides specialist home nursing care and support to children with complex medical and life-threatening conditions.
