Scotland’s Artists – Silent Auction for Syria

SCOTS ART 1

 

We have all seen the devastating effect the war has had on Syria and its refugees, the images of children being washed up on the shores and the anguish family’s are going through everyday. We all want to help in someway…

I have called on some of Scotland’s most prestigious designers and artists to contribute a piece to a silent auction in a bid to raise funds to support the Syrian Refugee Appeal.

All of the designers involved in the event have agreed to submit a piece of their own work, each designer will reach out to client’s family and friends to invite them to the auction open evening so collectively we can raise as much as possible and try and make a difference through our creative fields.

Watch this space!
