NZ artists support Look Good Feel Better

THE ART OF GIVING NZ artists support Look Good Feel Better

If you are looking for a fabulous piece of New Zealand art to grace your home or office, look no further than the inaugural Artigiano Charity Art Auction supporting Look Good Feel Better on Thursday 23 September.

This event will form the first unique partnership between Auckland-based gallery Artigiano and the national charity that works to help women with cancer.

Visitors who attend can help raise money for the charity by purchasing a catalogue and bidding furiously to secure any of the artworks up for auction.

The Artigiano Charity Art Auction supporting Look Good Feel Better will be held at Giltrap Prestige Showrooms, 100 Great North Road, Auckland at 7:00pm.

Visitors are invited to enjoy a glass of bubbles, sample Award Winning gourmet cheeses from Puhoi Valley, while viewing works from some of New Zealand's finest artists that will be showcased throughout the evening.

Works by pre-eminent Kiwi artists such as Dick Frizzell, Don Driver, John Papas, Ted Dutch, Barbara Bailey, Cruz Jimenez and Jane Mitchell are up for auction and will be featured in a special preview exhibition at Artigiano Gallery, The Habitat Courtyard, 251 Parnell Road, Auckland from 16 - 22 September.

All funds raised from sales at the auction will be donated to Look Good Feel Better, a registered national charity working for women with cancer.

Auckland's Artigiano Gallery offers an extensive range of contemporary New Zealand fine art, craft and design ware from a range of artists at differing stages of career development. Kylie Sanderson, owner and curator at Artigiano Gallery says "We're proud to be involved in the first ever Look Good Feel Better charity art auction and to be raising funds for such an important cause. The Artigiano Charity Art Auction offers an opportunity to invest in works of art from some of New Zealand's leading artists, whilst giving to such a worthy charity."

Look Good Feel Better chairperson, Vikki Lee Goode says all the funds from the Artigiano Charity Art Auction will be used to expand the Look Good Feel Better programme to reach more women undergoing cancer treatment. "Our programme touches the lives of thousands of cancer sufferers and their families and provides a vital boost to self esteem. In short, it helps women with cancer, to look good and feel better."
