On November 5th The Help Portfolio will be launched to raise funds for 16 charities affected by COVID-19, and one of those charities nominated is the Albrighton Community Centre.
The centre, on the East Dulwich Estate, runs youth and adult activities and has been prominent in providing food for the local elderly and vulnerable during the lockdown.
Help is a portfolio of 16 new prints from 16 leading UK artists. Each artist has made a new signed, limited edition print which they have generously donated to the portfolio. All profits from the sale of the boxed collection of prints will be donated to nominated charities that have been deeply affected by COVID-19. The organisations selected reflect a cause that the artists’ feel passionate about.
The portfolio artists include: Sue Arrowsmith, Margaret Calvert, Michael Craig Martin, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Idris Khan, Ian Davenport, Nicky Hirst, Chris Levine, Elizabeth Magill, Paul McDevitt, Annie Morris, Paul Morrison, Remi Rough, Yinka Shonibare, Mathew Weir and Paul Winstanley.
The artist Nicky Hirst nominated the Albrighton Community Centre, where she is a regular volunteer.
The Help Portfolio of 16 prints will be available to purchase online, at the special launch price of £7,500, from 11am, Thursday 5 November 2020 via the Jealous Gallery website.
