Artworks for Covid-19

Lucy Auge, Daffodil 5

Two fundraising efforts have especially piqued our attention this week. The first is an online auction, The Art of Staying Home from Blank White Space gallery that goes live on Friday 10 April at 9am and runs for 7 days. A small collection of artists’ have generously donated their work to raise funds for Global Giving’s Coronavirus Relief Fund – helping communities around the world fight the COVID-19 pandemic, and Meals for the NHS – giving meals to hungry NHS staff as they come off their shifts. There are some lovely things from Clare Grossman, Molly Mahon, La Rousse Illustration, Sara Pope, Laura Wickstead and Kassia St Claire with bids starting at just £10. Blank White Space will also be donating 20 prints to NHS workers. These will be released across the week via their instagram page – comment beneath the posts or tag an NHS worker and the prints will be given out at random.

Secondly, artist Lucy Auge was due to have an exhibition with Toast that was sadly cancelled as a result of Coronavirus. Now you can buy her works online, with £40 to each sale going towards Refuge and the RSPCA.  ‘A love letter to spring’ her botanical ink daffodils are joyful and would look great framed as a set.
