Going once, going twice, sold. Art went under the hammer last night and helped raise thousands of dollars for charity.
Now there was a little bit of tension in the air for sure, as bidders tried to get their hands on a set of watercolour paintings. Local artists did the paintings, that will form part of the 20-17 Cayman watercolours calendar.
“It’s both nerve racking and exciting, exciting because this is the first time that I’ve had the opportunity to submit my art work for the Cayman watercolour calendar, nerve racking because it’s a very new experience to have people both criticising and complementing your art,” said Highschool student, Stephanie Gumby.
“To be able to use your artistic talent for those in need ony feels good, I feel very honoured and privileged to be able to express my talents and for it to be shared with others like this to raise money for a good cause,” said Artist, Laurel Schmid
Cayman watercolours calendar has been ongoing for six years, this year’s auction brought the N.C.V.O and Cayman Hospice Care more than thirty thousand dollars.
