Art for Ark’s Sake

This Saturday, The Original Gallery at Hornsey Library will play host to a one-off charity art exhibition in aid of Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice.

And as well as offering up work by (non-artist) celebrities including Tim Minchin, Damian Lewis, Raphael Nadal and Sean Bean, the auction will also feature pieces by several Nosy Crow illustrators! You could win work by Pip and Posy illustrator Axel Scheffler, Weaselsr creator Elys Dolan, Hubble Bubble, Granny Trouble illustrator Joe Berger, Troll Swap creator Leigh Hodgkinson, or Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam illustrator Steven Lenton.

This exciting fundraising project is the brainchild of two local Crouch End mums, Ellie Northam and Bex Davies, who want to raise both awareness and vital funds for Noah’s Ark. The money will help the charity continue its incredible work supporting life-limited and life-threatened children, their brothers, sisters and families living in the communities of North London.

As well as the auction, which will begin at 8pm on Saturday December 14, the library will also be open during the day for a special family afternoon with (cakes and face painting) from 1pm – 5pm.

You can find out more about the exhibition and auction here, and read more about the fantastic work that Noah’s Ark do here. So if you’re around Crouch End on Saturday, help support this very worthy cause!
