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!

On another note:

More coming soon!

Going Green

October 14th, 2010

Green Abu Dhabi, an art show focusing on the environment and sustainable development, started just yesterday and will be running for 3 weeks.

The impact of a rapidly developing economy and community on the environment can be huge. The show aims to raise awareness, and highlight the challenges faced by such a community going forward.

You can check out Green Abu Dhabi’s Facebook page here.

Green Abu Dhabi features a core exhibition by 5 emerging artists in Abu Dhabi and supported by a number of events and other exhibitions, including a Community Art Auction, where community artists will be auctioning off some of their work. A portion of proceeds of all sales of artwork and merchandise at Green Abu Dhabi will be going towards the WWF-EWS, the Future Center for Special Needs Children of Abu Dhabi, and the Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services.

I will be one of the community artists who’ll be displaying and auctioning off a few pictures. All proceeds of the sales of my work will go to charity.

If you’re in Abu Dhabi don’t miss it! Come one, come all, come strong, tell your friends, spread the word!

The picture above was taken on a recent snorkelling trip.

More coming soon!
