The Outcome of the Auction

October 27th, 2010

I am so very chuffed by the outcome of Green Abu Dhabi‘s Community Art Auction!

Thank you to all those who believed in the movement, came and supported Green Abu Dhabi, mingled and participated in the auction!

The results speak for themselves: pretty much everything – over 50 pictures and paintings (including 20 paintings done by the children from the Future Centre for Special Needs Children) – sold out!

It was a momentous occasion. So many people showed up. The place was buzzing. I certainly had a blast. And the support I got from my family, friends and colleagues was extraordinary. I am so very grateful to them all.

I’m also overjoyed by the response that my work received. And am very very happy to say that my 3 submissions – my first ever prints on show – were sold to for a total of AED 34,000/- (about USD 9,250/-)! Woo-hoo! All proceeds will of course go to the Future Centre. This donation was only made possible thanks to the generosity of spirit of two extraordinary people who believed in my work. I cannot thank them enough.

Some of my readers abroad have asked which were the pictures I finally opted to submit. One, titled “A Slow Dance”, I shared with you in yesterday’s post. Below are the other two pictures:

“Thought and Memory”

“Remains of the Day”

Each was a signed limited edition print of 1.

Community Art Auction – Green Abu Dhabi

October 25th, 2010

Alright!

Green Abu Dhabi’s Community Art Auction is here!

As you know, Green Abu Dhabi is a grass roots initiative – an art show focusing on the environment and sustainable development, the aim of which is to promote awareness of some of the issues facing the rapidly developing Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

I’ve had the honour of being selected as one of the contributing artists to the show’s Community Art Auction event which will take place tomorrow, 26/10/2010, at the Emirates Heritage Club in Al Bateen, Abu Dhabi at 7:30pm.

I will be auctioning off 3 photos (yep only 3 this time, unfortunately) to raise money for the Future Center for Special Needs Children in Abu Dhabi and the World Wildlife Fund’s Abu Dhabi initiatives.

Check out the feature on the Community Art Auction in the excellent Abu Dhabi Week magazine.

You can also check out Green Abu Dhabi’s website here and facebook page here.

Below is one of the three images I am submitting for the Community Art Auction tomorrow:

Come one, come all! Spread the word! Join us tomorrow, be merry, meet your friends, have fun – and bid, bid, bid! Is all for charity!

Choose a Picture for Green Abu Dhabi

October 17th, 2010

Hello everyone!

Well, as you know, I’m to be showing a few pictures in the Community Artists section of Green Abu Dhabi. That section of the show is set to launch in the coming week or so (exact date to be confirmed).

This post is to ask you, my readers (all 2 of you) to select the picture or pictures (but please, no more than 3) from any of my main website or the blog that they would like to see exhibited and auctioned off at Green Abu Dhabi. Remember, all proceeds of the sale of my pictures will be going to charity!

To spice things up a bit for you, the person who ends up selecting a picture that I end up exhibiting will get a thank you for their contribution, in the form of their very own signed print!

Now the bad news: I have to ask you to hurry and give me your suggestions (either by email or in the comments section) by the 20th of October at the latest.

Cheers!
