Blind Dining Cornwall Blind Association Charity Auction

Blind Dining in aid of Cornwall Blind Association

I am thrilled to be involved with  Blind Dining, a unique fundraising event being organised by Jessica Ratty, the Communications Manager for Cornwall Blind Association, where guests will be invited to eat their two-course meal while wearing a blindfold, thereby giving everyone an experience of how visual impairment could feel to them, and how it does feel to some of the 10,500 visually impaired people in Cornwall.

The evening is being held at the aptly named One Eyed Cat in Truro and I am sure that it will be a fascinating evening , with fantastic food and excellent entertainment, including live music.  I have donated a piece of work for the Charity Auction.   It is an exquisitely layered mono/screenprint ( ie a one off), on 400gsm hand torn paper, floated and framed under glass in a Signature frame commissioned especially for me in solid ash with bevelled hand gesso’d front edge and with American Black Walnut key joints on all corner. Overall size 55cm x 63cm + frame.   This was in The Bristol Gallery with more of my screenprints in a joint exhibition with Sir Peter Blake at£1,600 last year and I am delighted to donate it for this exceptional cause….

Scilly At Dusk overall size 55cm x 63cm + frame March 2011

In addition to my screenprint there will be a Michael Spiers Jewellers donated Gucci bracelet and a Moet and Chandon bottle of champagne studded with Swarovski crystals up for auction on the night.
