Incognito Paintings In Aid Of Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation
In aid of raising money for the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation, 1500 original, miniature pieces of art donated by “Incognito” artists, will go on sale for €50 each in The Solomon Gallery from the 21st to the 25th of April..
Giving buyers a chance to purchase a valuable piece worth thousands from a well-known name, the artist’s identity won’t be revealed until after the sale. Featuring donations by over 1000 artists from around the country and overseas, It is hoped that Incognito will raise €75,000 for Jack & Jill to fund home nursing care for the 300 children under Jack & Jill’s wing today, children with severe development delay as a result of brain damage, children who may never paint a picture themselves; precious children who do better at home, where they are well cared for by their parents with critical support from Jack & Jill nurses.
The collection, which can be viewed at www.incognito.ie, will be on sale, on a first come first served basis, for €50 each in The Solomon Gallery, Dublin (beside the Westbury Hotel off Grafton Street) from 21st to 25th April, offering purchasers a chance to secure a valuable piece of art worth thousands of euro from one of the 50 well-known artists involved but, as the name Incognito suggests, the artist’s identity is top secret and won’t be revealed until after the sale.
The campaign, which is sponsored by global property advisor Knight Frank, builds on the success of Jack & Jill’s previous public art projects, including painted sculptures of hares, pigs, eggs and cows - and the charity decided to switch from a 3D to a 2D approach this year, with these miniature pieces of art done on a small card, the size of a postcard, with the artist’s name on the back, offering proper affordability to everyone.
Jack & Jill’s 12 liaison nurses from around the country have managed and delivered Jack & Jill’s unique home nursing care and respite service for sick children, from birth to 4 years of age since 1997. The Jack & Jill service operates 365 days a year, has no waiting list and mobilizes an army of 1,000 nurses and carers around the country and has done so for 20 years, with 2017 being Jack & Jill’s 20th anniversary year. The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation must raise €3.5 million every year to keep going and this is one of many fundraisers throughout the year, with every €16 raised funding 1 hour of home nursing care for a sick child.
That being said, a truly invaluable cause and at a reasonable price. Jack & Jill's tireless efforts are dependent on donations and fundraisers and this is one event that needs your help.
Details are available now on www.incognito.ie and people can contact the project manager Lucinda Hall on firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Get involved for an unbelievable cause folks!
