Young Masters Fundraising Exhibition and Auction
UK- London | Jun 13 2012 | (01:06:40 - EDT)
This dynamic exhibition will showcase Young Masters past and present, culminating in an auction of selected artworks hosted by Christie’s on 21 June 2012, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Drinks and canapés will be served at a reception sponsored by Baydonhill FX and proceeds and donations will go to support the Young Masters Art Prize, a not-forprofit initiative. The Young Masters Art Prize is a biennial competition open to artists who combine innovation with awareness of the Old Masters and the art of the past. Offering global recognition to emerging artists, it is the brainchild of London based gallerist Cynthia Corbett. Past winners have been exhibited at The Courtauld Institute, Somerset House, Art Miami and Art Chicago.
Young Masters winners and finalists, Ghost of a Dream, Lluís Barba and Charlotte Bracegirdle, will all be featured, as well as exciting 2012 newcomers Elaine Wilson, Wieland Payer, Nina Fowler and Nick Veasey. Says Cynthia “Our initiative is unparalleled in that it showcases international contemporary art with historical links both to the British public and the arts world. We’re delighted that our prior winners and runners-up have since gained substantial awareness and this exhibition/auction will secure funds to ensure the continuation of Young Masters.”
The Young Masters Fundraising Exhibition is 18 June – 4 July 2012, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
