Move over Santa – it’s the Art Sale’s turn!
Colchester Hospitals Charity (COHOC) has been raising funds to build a new Cancer Centre at Colchester Hospital, where the current chemotherapy facilities are overcrowded, uncomfortable and distant from other treatment areas.
The new £3.25m Centre will bring a first class service to all cancer patients and their families, providing more space, greater privacy and conveniently located close to other necessary facilities. COHOC needs to raise just under £600,000 to start building this desperately needed facility.
Which is where the Secret Art Sale comes in.
Original artworks are donated by artists – professional, celebrity, aspiring, student and amateur – then exhibited and sold for a fixed price of £40 each. The art works are exhibited anonymously. The ‘secret’ is that the buyer does not know who has created the work of art until they buy. The buyer purchases a piece that they like, there are over 500 pieces to choose from, which could be by someone famous or by their next door neighbour! Only when buyers receive their purchase will the name of the artist be revealed!
The Secret Art Sale is being held on 2nd and 3rd March at The Minories, High Street, Colchester and promises to be a huge success – the artwork for sale is amazing.
Daniel Connal Partnership is delighted to have been able to support this imaginative and worthwhile venture.
