The partnership between the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust and The Griffin Gallery has given way to a spectacular exhibition with stunning pieces most contemporary art enthusiasts will surely appreciate.
In total 13 pieces from scholars from the trust as well as 13 others from the gallery’s artists will be showcased for the general public to marvel at and bid on. Talented designer Scott Benefield has created exquisite fine-lined glass sculptures for the exclusive event that start from £1,250. His delicate work and meticulous forms complement beautifully Rachel Wickremer’s highly textured paintings and the clear, captivating linear nature of her shapes. Prices for her creations are available on request.
Another interesting suggestion is artist’s Trevor Cain meticulously restored vintage dollhouses, which are simply spellbinding with the attention to detail and intricate embellishments. Prices from £1,200 every model is uniquely tailored and features authentic fabrics and captivating old-fashioned aesthetics. A bit on the unorthodox side are Nicola Dale’s paper sculptures, which are as fragile and intriguing as they are valuable with prices available on request at the gallery.
Talented and respected artists Mia Sarosi’s ethereal porcelain creations are also featured with the depth of their subtle properties being her signature mark. Stating at £200 – there is no limit to the hand-made and printed ceramic pieces that she’s capable of designing with each one being of unique nature and form. Her notable reputation in the artistic guild is a testament to the unmatched quality of her ceramic creations.
All proceeds from the sales of the artistic pieces will go towards the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust, which has funded over 350 scholarships for people in 130 mediums since its launch back in 1990. This is a unique event that allows individuals with appreciation for art, quality and exclusivity to acquire unique and valuable pieces while contributing towards a worthwhile philanthropic cause.
