Art For Amnesty and Co December 5th 2009

I have a painting in an Amnesty International show at the Watershed 2 in Bristol tommorow. The show is from 2pm til 5pm and then the work is going to be auctioned off between 5pm and 9pm. Click on the picture at the bottom of the post to check out the Amnesty Bristol website. Here's some more information...

The Bristol Group of Amnesty International is proud to be hosting an art auction to to raise funds and awareness for Amnesty International, notably human rights day coming up on 10th December, and also local projects right here in Bristol. The projects involved in the auction are The Studio Upstairs, The Rainbow Centre and Bristol Refugee Rights (see below for more details). Human rights day celebrates the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, and this year is focusing on 'embracing diversity and ending discrimination'.

The auction is to take place at the WATERSHED Media Centre, right in the centre of Bristol, on Saturday 5th December. The conference rooms will be open from 2pm, where people can view all of the artwork up for auction, and the event itself will start at 5pm. All of the artwork is being donated for free so all profits will go into the fundraising pot!

The auctioneer for the night is Ed Rising from Sotheby's! With such an accomplished professional at the reigns the auction is bound to be well run and raise as much as possible for charity.

The aim is to make good quality pieces of art available for art lovers, and also provide affordable art and framed photographic prints (that just look nice!), for anyone to put in their home. It is also a good chance to pick up a bargain Christmas present. Expect the best auctioneers, celebrity art, and much more!
