As reported in Artmag.co.uk, the visual arts agency ArtThou‘s online art exhibition, No Borders is continuing to support Scottish artists and raise funds for the cancer charity Maggie’s Centres. The unique exhibition has been extended well beyond the originally-projected 30th September, and features over 100 original pieces of affordable art from more than 30 emerging Scottish artists, with 20 per cent of proceeds earmarked for Maggie’s. Prices range from £200 to £500.
The No Borders initiative was set up by Hugo Barclay, owner of ArtThou, to support emerging talent in the art community and raise funds for Maggie’s in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Hugo was isolated in Madrid while all his family were back home in Scotland, and felt moved to partner the initiative with Maggie’s Centres after his father-in-law was diagnosed with cancer; established in Edinburgh in 1996, the charity provides free cancer support and information in centres across the UK and online.
A full list of artists: Alistair Gow, Anupa Gardner, Bronwen Sleigh, Campbell Barclay, Craig Coulthard, David Iain Brown, Elizabeth Bevington, Emily Moore, Eric Cruikshank, Hannah Lim, Hugo Harris, Ian Healy, Jack Dunnett, Joe Buhat, Kristina Chan, Lynsey MacKenzie, Matt Farr, Naomi McClure, Neil Kellas, Pimpawan Wangamonmit, Rosaleigh Harvey-Otway, Rosalind Lawless, Rowan Paton, Ruby Pluhar, Sarinda Devine, Shipei Wang, Alex Weir, Sophia Pauley, Tessa Maudlin and Yasmin Moore-Milne.
