Yuka Kashihara "Lemon Tree" 2020 Acrylic, oil, canvas
Charity auction with 20 artists
At Pola Museum Annex (Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo), the charity auction held last year for the purpose of supporting measures against new coronavirus infections will be held again this year as the "Find your travel" exhibition from November 12, 2021 (Friday). It will be held until December 5th (Sun).
At the first charity auction of this gallery last year, we received warm support and cooperation from many customers, and the total revenue of 9,145,000 yen was donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society for "coronavirus infections, etc." I was able to donate as a "donation".
And, unfortunately, as the spread of infection has not subsided and the response to the new coronavirus has been prolonged, we can do what we can for medical professionals who are struggling on the front lines. With that in mind, we have decided to hold a charity project this year as well.
This time as well, 20 artists involved in this gallery who agreed with this purpose (see the attached profile) will create works with the theme of "travel", one for each. A total of 20 works can be viewed not only at the exhibition hall, but also online in the silent auction * format (the bidding site is scheduled to open on Monday, November 15).
We hope that through the various "journeys" expressed by each artist, we will be able to bring smiles to everyone so that they can experience the feeling of traveling and enjoy imagining where to go when they are calm.
In addition, we plan to donate all the proceeds from the auction to the Japanese Red Cross Society this time as well.
* Silent auction is a bid-only auction, in which the highest bidder is the winning bidder without bidding.
