We host at least one major fundraising Auction for the foundation every year. These auctions are specialised art events and we are lucky to have the support of a wide range of talented artists and potters who regularly donate works towards our cause. A BIG thank you to Philip Powell and Mark Gadd from Powells & Associates who provide us with pro bono and highly profesional support!
SUCCESSFUL AUCTION AT STEPHAN WELZ & CO, CAPE TOWN
This year, our dear friend and well-loved artist Jan Vermeiren organized a spectacular collection of fine art and ceramics which were auctioned through Stephan Weltz and Co in Constantia, Cape Town on 2 October 2012 at 18:30. Included in the lot were paintings by Peter Clarke, Eric Laubscher, Simon Stone, Jan Vermeiren, Hardy Botha, Paul Du Toit, Leon de Bliquy, Theo Paul Vorster and Liza Hugo. Also on auction were ceramic works by Barbara Jackson (generously donated by Carolyn Prades), Clementina van der Walt, Andile Dyalvane, Anthony Shapiro in collaboration with Louis van Loon, Hardy Botha, Madoda Fani and Lisa Firer. The auction raised a total of R 45 580 in profit which will all be spent on delivering our therapeutic clay programmes to orphaned and vulnerable children in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO JAN, STEPHAN WELZ, CAROLYN PRADES AND EVERY ARTIST WHO CONTRIBUTED WORK OR PROFITS TOWARDS THIS INITIATIVE.
