Buy now – help the NHS staff!
The Secret Art Sale was held on 21/22 February 2020 at The Minories. Lots of original art was for sale – paintings, prints, collage, glass, textiles – for just £40.
All the unsold works are now for sale at just £25 with the money raised from this going to the COVID-19 Staff Wellbeing Appeal
Missed the sale or can’t get to it and want to buy? Here is the link to the Just Giving page.
It’s a good idea to email me (kathy(at)designsweet.co.uk) first to check if the one/s you want is/are still for sale…it/they may be sold already!
All the artworks in our Secret Art Sale are donated by artists; professional, aspiring, student, and amateur, and they all sold at one price – a reasonable price for a piece of original art – £40. Which means that you can own a piece of totally original art that you love, hang it on your wall, and no-one else will have exactly the same picture! All the artworks are only signed on the back – so you don’t know who has created the work you buy – until you buy it. It could be by someone who is already famous, someone is who going to be the next big name, or by your next door neighbour!
Many of the artists have very personal reasons for contributing to the sale: they, or their friends or relatives, are undergoing treatment for cancer, or they (or friends or relatives) have been cared for by the hospital. We turn no art away – all is put into the sale.
Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity have reached their target for the new Collingwood Centre. It has been built and has welcomed the first patients. It still needs some finishing touches… and with the money that has been raised so far the Charity is also building a Cancer Wellbeing Centre – which needs on-going funding.
