first_imgSeven creatives from Donegal have donated works to an extraordinary art sale in aid of the Jack & Jill Foundation.But who they are and what pieces they’ve created is a mystery.The INCOGNITO 2019 event will be will be the largest art sale in Ireland this year, with 2,600 postcard-size pieces of original artworks donated by over 1,000 International artists, including 7 artists from County Donegal. Each of these original art pieces will be sold to the public on a first-come-first-served basis for €50 — the twist is that no one will know the identity of the artist until after they buy the piece.The pieces can now be viewed on www.incognito.ie, ahead of the sale days, which take place in the Solomon Gallery Dublin from 5th – 7th April and the Lavit Gallery Cork from 17th – 18th May.  Preview days are being held in the galleries on 3rd and 4thApril in Dublin and on 16th May in Cork.With works by well-known artists valued at many times the sale price, this is an opportunity to find yourself the owner of a collector’s dream or simply an artwork that you love.Artists submitting their work for INCOGNITO 2019 include Paul Costelloe, Bono, Maser, Tom Climent, Mick O’Dea, Ed Miliano, Adrian + Shane, Abigail O’Brien, Peter Curling, Martin Mooney and Victor Richardson. Paul Costelloe and Jack & Jill nurse Anne ReillyNow in its third year, the art sale has proven to be a huge success, with last year’s sell-out event raising over €95,000 for Jack & Jill.Every €16 raised funds one hour of home nursing care for over 340 children who are under Jack & Jill’s wing today; including the 7 families currently receiving care in County Donegal.These precious children, with severe neurodevelopmental delay, who may never walk or talk or paint a picture themselves, do better at home with their families supported by the Jack & Jill nursing care service.Speaking at the announcement Carmel Doyle, CEO of Jack & Jill said buyers’ interest is already high: “It’s a real art lotto and, if last year is anything to go by, people will be queuing from early morning outside both galleries to purchase their favourite piece.”View the pieces on www.incognito.ie Donegal artists go incognito for secret sale in aid of Jack & Jill was last modified: March 14th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:art saleartistsincognitojack & jilllast_img
