TwitterArtExhibit (TAE)17: Funds Raised as of 28 April 2017 and TAE18


“Through art we can change the world.”

That’s the subtitle for TAE. I entered the Twitter Art Exhibit for the first time this year, which involved donating a postcard-sized work of art for auction, this year at Stratford-Upon-Avon. Proceeds went to Molly Olly’s Wishes, a charity supporting children with terminal or life threatening illnesses. The charity grants individual wishes and donates therapeutic toys and books both to children directly and to hospitals throughout the UK.

The opening night of TAE17 raised over £12,000 for Molly Olly’s Wishes. And I’ve just read that as of 28 April, over £15,000 had been raised. I was very pleased to learn that my contribution had been sold.

Twitter Art in 2018 is to raise money for Pegasus Riding for the Disabled of the ACT
Pegasus provides therapeutic horse-facilitated programs and activities for people with disabilities. They bring horses and people together to achieve their potential.  Horse riding helps to improve coordination, balance, muscle development and fitness. It also boosts personal confidence, self-esteem, communication skills, leadership and trust.

ACT stands for Australian Capital Territory, comprising Canberra, Australia’s capital, which is situated between Sydney and Melbourne and the federal district’s forest, farmland and nature reserves.

The address for Pegasus is in a town called Holt. I hope it’s auspicious that I live just over an hour from Holt, England. And given that eucalyptus is predominantly native to Australia, it seems to dovetail that I use some leaves from the eucalyptus tree that I have in my new garden.

If you’re an artist, think of taking part in TAE18. The picture at the top is of the work I donated to TAE17, an encaustic eco print of brambles and eucalyptus leaves on a watercolour paper postcard.

Let me know if you are going to participate so I can link with you.
