Silent Art Auction for Japan Relief at Fold Gallery

Posted by Rise Art on 07th April 2011

As the global news coverage and collective attention begins to fade from the tragedy in Japan, the human cost continues to mount. With over 15,000 people still missing and an ongoing nuclear emergency that continues to displace thousands from their homes, the people of Japan still need our help.

Fold Gallery in London has come up with a creative way to help support the cause. This Friday night, A silent auction will be held at the gallery featuring works from talented artists including David Sullivan, Giulia Ricci, Junko Otake, John L Tran and our very own Andy Wicks (see images below). Rise Art has donated one of Andy's prints for the auction. All proceeds will benefit the Japan relief. The prints will be affordable too, with prices bids starting at ï¿¡20. This is a great way to expand your collection while doing good. Hope to see you there!
