It’s a win-win situation – buy exquisite NZ art to help the Breast Cancer Research Trust find a cure for breast cancer by 2018.
Art for a Cure is a one-of-a-kind exhibition featuring well known NZ artists, all inspired by their favourite NZ musician to create a unique piece of art. Never before have artists and musicians collaborated together in a group of this size with a goal of this sort, and the results are truly outstanding.
For example, Karl Maughan’s ‘Andy’ was inspired by Don McGlashan and The Front Lawn. Jeff Thompson’s guitar is an homage to The Topp Twins. Bic Runga is the subject of Peter Stichbury’s portrait. And Crowded House’s Better Be Home Soon inspired Virginia King’s ‘Motherland Leaf’.
In addition to the 14 artworks are limited edition pieces that have been specially selected and created for Art for a Cure.
Artworks for auction are by: Neil Dawson – Dick Frizzell – Gavin Hurley – Simon Kaan – Virginia King – Andrew McLeod – Peter Madden – Karl Maughan – Stanley Palmer – Fiona Pardington – Martin Poppelwell – Peter Stichbury – Jeff Thomson – Pamela Wolfe
Limited edition artworks are by: Mary-Louise Browne – Bronwynne Cornish – Paul Dibble – Terry Stringer – Jim Wheeler.
