This Saturday an anonymous art exhibition and auction will be held in aid of local dog charity MADRA at Tribeton, Galway.

This exciting event will see the works of over 25 artists which have been specially commissioned for the event anonymously exhibited then auctioned off. Some of the big names whose art will be on offer on the evening are Margo Banks, Padraig Mc Caul, Deirdre Walsh, Marissa Weatherhead, Tomas O Maoldomhnaigh, Martina Furlong, Kate Beagan and many more.

Works from both amateur as well as established artists will be anonymously exhibited and only after the hammer comes down will the artist be revealed.

MADRA spokesperson Katie-May North says that the artists involved have all submitted canvasses signed only on the reverse so the works showcased will be kept anonymous until after purchase.”

“We will have over 25 brilliant original pieces on offer so if you’re stuck for Christmas gift ideas look no further, this is a great opportunity for art and dog lovers alike to pick up some wonderful paintings whilst also supporting MADRA.”
