Around 100 Scottish artists, including David Mach, Barbara Rae, Adrian Wiszniewski and Ken Currie, have donated works for sale in Artist Aid Ukraine – a fundraising exhibition to support victims of the war in Ukraine. The exhibition will take place in a 5,300 square foot space donated by the Pentagon Business Centre in Glasgow, the former whisky bond. Highlights include works by the Glasgow-based Ukrainian artist Steven Skrynka and a specially created sculpture by Alexander Stoddart comprising a bust of the river god Dnieper. Prices range from under £500 to over £5,000.
Proceeds will go to the British Red Cross, which has helped over 1.5 million people since the conflict began, and OPORA, a UK-based charity set up to provide support to Ukrainians who are looking to rebuild their lives in safety having fled the war.
