The Power of Women charity uses creativity to champion equality and diversity of women and girls, culminating in their annual arts festival to celebrate International Women’s Day. The art auction and exhibition has been created to help raise funds to support POW‘s charitable work, notably the continuing issue of violence against women.
“Artists featured in this auction include internationally renowned artists, students and recent graduates, and people who create for their own enjoyment including young people. Everyone can create art!“
The 40 artworks up for auction can be viewed online here, or in person at the Hotel Michele exhibition space in Margate. Bidding opens online from next Wednesday 16th November.
The exhibition is part of the Turner Contemporary Open which runs until 20th February 2022. The various posters can be seen dotted around East Kent railway stations creating a kind of art trail treasure hunt. Please let me know if you spot this one.
