Fancy owning a one-of-a-kind artwork for a bargain price AND contributing to charity? The MS Trust offers the Secret Art Show to raise funds for research and support for those suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.
Starting 4 May, 250 works will be sold online for the affordable price of £45. Many well-known artists have contributed to the collection of 12cm x 12 cm artworks, but at the time of purchase the artists remain anonymous. Only after receiving the works will the purchaser be able to determine the creator.
Since the Secret Art Show began in 2010, the MS Trust has raised £40,000 from this endeavour and hopes to continue to raise much-needed funds. Jill Holt, the mind behind the show, is also one of the founders of the MS Trust in 1993 after watching close family members suffer from MS. In honour of MS Awarness Week, the Secret Art Show is launching to give a bit more inspiration to donate to the cause.
The names of participating artists are currently kept secret, but with a wide selection of media and styles to choose from, it’s expected that 80% of the collection will be sold in the first 10 days.
