Macmillan And De'Longhi Join Forces With Artists For Charity Auction
De’Longhi, and Macmillan Cancer Support will join forces with artists, to display a collection of contemporary artworks in a week-long exhibition, which will culminate in a silent auction to raise money for the cancer support charity. The exhibition at the Darren Baker Gallery, London will last for one week, from 21st – 27th October, and offers the chance to view the artworks on display and bid, at the gallery or online.
Among the pieces of contemporary art included in the exhibition by artists who have generously given works for auction include Rob Ryan, famed for his intricate papercut work; Idris Khan, an international British artist who is most recognised for his multi-layered photographs that draw on a wide range of sources. The artist has also had major commissions from the British Museum and The New York Times Magazine; and artist Polly Morgan, who creates works of art using taxidermy, and has had solo exhibitions in the UK, USA, and Italy.
Macmillan Cancer Support has been helping support those whose lives are affected by cancer since its conception in 2007. The money raised this year will be used to help fund the Macmillan Support Line, a free telephone support service to help those living with cancer, or those who know someone with cancer.
The public exhibition will culminate in an exciting evening silent auction with a private on Monday 27th October.
