In 2015 Backwater Artists Group suffered a huge funding cut from the Arts Council which followed years of harsh budget cuts. We now have a large amount of money to recoup which we are hoping to do through our fundraising DRAW. Over 150 artists have very generously and thankfully committed to making a piece of art for our fundraising DRAW to be held on April 1 2016. Click on the images above to see a selection of the work, this will be updated as work comes in over the coming weeks. Both well known Irish artists and emerging artists have agreed to partake. We are appealing to everyone to support us by buying a ticket for the DRAW. This is a WIN WIN situation for buyers, as EVERYONE WHO BUYS A TICKET WILL GO HOME WITH A PIECE OF ART!!!
This is a rare opportunity to support us and to acquire a piece of art worth a lot more than the ticket price!!!
How does DRAW work?
Ticket Price: €50
Venue: CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery, Wandesford Quay, Cork
Viewing from 12 noon – 6pm Thursday 31 March & from 11 am – 6pm Friday 1 April | The DRAW kicks-off 6pm sharp on Friday 1 April!
Tickets are sold in advance through Backwater Artists Group office and website. Each person who purchases a ticket becomes a friend and is allocated a ticket number. Everyone is guaranteed to win a piece of Art.
On the night of DRAW and on the day before, all Friends view the work on display. At 6pm, the DRAW begins, with ticket numbers pulled out a hat. As your ticket number is drawn, it is matched with a piece art.
As mentioned above all works are worth a lot more than the ticket price. So buy your ticket!!
