For one night only, Mary’s Living & Giving Shop Supporting Save the Children will be hosting an evening with Just Glass, who will be showcasing the works of internationally acclaimed and emerging glass artists. The evening will be the only occasion in 2011when this collection of beautiful jewellery, stylish vessels and unique sculptures will be exhibited and available for purchase.
The ‘Just Glass at Mary’s Living & Giving’ event will take place on 6 July 2011 at Mary’s Living and Giving Shop supporting Save the Children on Westbourne Grove (6pm – 9pm). Work on show will include cast glass pieces by internationally renowned artist Angela Thwaites and the intricate gilding of Frances Federer. On the evening you will also have the opportunity to meet the artists firsthand, discuss the inspiration behind their collection, knowing that monies raised from your purchases will go towards saving a child’s life.
This event is being held in conjunction with Notting Hill’s First Wednesdays, with a percentage of funds raised on the evening going towards Save the Children’s, ‘No Child Born Without a Chance’ campaign. Eight million children die every year from easily preventable causes, such as pneumonia or diarrhoea. Save the Children’s ‘No Child Born to Die campaign, calls for vaccinations to be made available for the world’s poorest children – a move which could save a quarter of these children from dying. The campaign is being backed by a range of celebrities, including Alexandra Burke, Helena Bonham Carter and Natasha Kaplinsky.
The full range of artists exhibiting will be Angela Thwaites, Charlie Murphy, Frances Federer, Ingrid Hunter, Joanna Waddy, Julia Hayward, Julie Light, Maha Sarkis, Mandy Treptow, Phillipa Candy, Stuart Turnbull, Su Herbert and Wendy Newhofer.
