Artists from 10 countries, and 29 counties in Ireland have contributed work to the INCOGNITO Art sale of 1,812 original pieces of art for the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.
This year's INCOGNITO collection is available to view on your screens at www.incognito.ie with the actual sale happening on Friday, April 24. Each piece in the collection costs €50 with the special twist of no one knowing the identity of the artist until after they buy the art and raises much needed funds for the foundation.
Seven Mayo children and their families benefit from, specialist home nursing care and end-of-life support provided by Jack & Jill. During this difficult time Jack & Jill support is more important than ever for these families.
Sadly, due to the current crisis, there is massive funding shortfall with the cancellation of so many fundraisers and closure of shops, but the Jack & Jill Foundation are doing their utmost to continue the care and support throughout the county as needed. Home nursing and telephone support is being provided for families self-isolating.
Incognito has attracted the biggest art queues in Ireland over the last three years but this year the queue moves online, and they hope the demand to be higher than ever. As well as the 15 generous artists from Mayo who have contributed pieces, world renowned names including Bruce and Patti Springsteen, Helen Steele, Paul Costelloe, Duda, Maser, Ruthie Ashenhurst, Bono, Martin Mooney have contributed also donated. With works by well-known artists valued at many times the sale price, this is an amazing opportunity to become an owner of a prized painting or simply a piece of artwork that you love.
The Mayo artists taking part are Linda Barrett, Kevin Bourke, Norah Brennan, Rachel Corcoran, Alicia Dempsey, Tina Heraty, Marilese Hertfelder, Davina Johnson, Anthony Kelly, Cathy Lewis, Alice Maher, Frances McGonigle, Susie Quinn, Marian Shally and Sylvia Spain.
Each of these original art pieces will be sold online to the public on a first-click-first-served basis for €50, — with a maximum of three pieces per person, the twist is that no one will know the identity of the artist until after they buy the piece. The pieces can be viewed on www.incognito.ie ahead of the sale, which will go live on April 24. The proud new owners of the pieces will receive them via post for a €5 postage and packing charge.
