March 18, 2018 | 0 Comments

The opening of the annual art exhibition sponsored by the International Women’s Club [IWC] of Bermuda recently is being called “a big success” in raising money for two local charities.

A spokesperson said, “The opening of the annual art exhibition sponsored by the International Women’s Club [IWC] of Bermuda last Friday was a big success, raising money for two local charities.

“Pieces are still available for purchase through Monday, April 2 at The Gallery in the CHUBB Building, Woodbourne Avenue. The gallery will remain open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.

“To purchase, please contact philanthropy@iwcbda.com. Chubb donated the gallery for the show and sponsored the opening reception.

“Each year, IWC members create and donate one of a kind works of art and photographs for the exhibition. All proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to two selected charities, the Bermuda Education Network and the Bermuda Islands Association of the Deaf.

“Governor John Rankin attended the gala opening last Friday night in support of the show, along with Minister of Health Kim Wilson, representing the Bermuda government.

“Tom Butterfield, founder and creative director of Masterworks, served as auctioneer, a highlight of the evening.

“Louise Foden-Pattinson, IWC Philanthropy Chair, said a huge amount of work went into putting on the event, not only from the artists donating pieces but the collating, pricing, having them all photographed and producing the catalogue. The exhibition was curated by Peter Lapsley.”
