Cancercare's Grand Charity Art Auction at the Town Hall on Friday

Chris Satori
Local charity CancerCare will be holding a Charity Art Auction this Friday 16 July in Lancaster Town Hall's Ashton Hall. The show is open for viewing from 6.30pm with the auction itself running from 7.30pm until 10pm. Live music will be provided by Jazz Unlimited and the evening promises a feast of art.

This outstanding show boasts a catalogue of 90 pieces and a silent auction of 46 pieces, to run concurrently with the main auction.

The highlights will be three small sculptures by the late nationally-renowned sculptress Josefina da Vasconcellos and three beautiful works by David Gilbert, one of which is a stunning woodcut (artist's proof) “Schrodinger’s Breakfast.”

Other favourites are three lithographs by Ian Gardner, recognised as in the top echelons of working artists in the country.

Two small sculpted figurines by Sally Toms will also raise the bar on the night.

Two pieces expected to draw interest are original works by acclaimed Lancaster artist Chas Jacobs, one of which is a drawing and the other a specially commissioned piece for the CancerCare ½ Bay Cross Marathon Challenge.
And there will also be prints by Bob Armitage, Kay Boyce, J Beddows and many more fine works, figurative, abstract and photographic.

CancerCare offers support and information, free of charge, for people affected by Cancer in North Lancashire and South Lakeland; this includes cancer patients, their carers and family members and those bereaved by cancer. In addition they have a special Children’s and Young People’s Service.

CancerCare provides approximately 15,000 much-needed and appreciated free therapy sessions per year to its clients at the present time and with the prospect of cancer rates doubling in the next decade fundraising is vital for the service it delivers to our community.

Admission to this superb show is only £3.50 which actually includes a free first drink and nibbles! So come and browse to the music of Jazz Unlimited, have a drink, and don’t miss this stellar evening in support of CancerCare.
