Art for ARC 2021 is back for a second year by popular demand! Following on from the huge success of last year’s first ART for ARC online auction – we are delighted to bring you a bigger event with lots and lots more artists donating their beautiful pieces of work to raise money for ARC Cancer Support Centres.

It will be some time yet before we are all back to normal.  Though vaccines are being rolled out and our national Covid numbers seem to be on the right track, we still don’t know when our drop-in centres will re-open.  Nor can we be certain that our usual fundraising activities can start any time soonAt the same time services have had to respond to a surge in the need for crisis counselling due to hugely increased levels of anxiety and stress on patients and families.

Art for ARC is our online charity auction featuring pieces from renowned artists all over Ireland. The collection features an exciting and eclectic mix of pieces including paintings, sculptures and photographs. The artworks range from pastels, watercolours, and oil on canvas, to prints, mixed media and collage. Each has a reserve price ranging from €50 to €14,000.

Art for ARC will feature over 150 pieces from renowned artists including;  Elizabeth Cope, Margo Banks, Margaret Egan, Ann Bouchier Hayes, John Keating, David Uda, Colin Eaton, John Fitzgerald, Leo Higgins, Mary Dillon and many more!

ARC is extremely grateful to the artists and creators who have so kindly donated their works of art for this initiative and we would encourage people to dig as deep as they can to ensure that generosity goes a long way in supporting people affected by cancer and their loved ones. ARC would like to thank all the artists for their wonderful donations and to all the other supporters who have helped make our 2021 auction possible.

The Art for ARC auction goes live on Friday 28th May at 10am, with bidding closing on Sunday 30th May at 6pm. A preview of all auction items will take place on Friday, 14th May to Friday, 21st May. We will be sharing the auction link closer to the time. As with any auction, the highest bidder wins, but the difference with Art for ARC is that bidders will also be making a huge difference to the work of ARC Cancer Support Centres.

GOOD LUCK!
