Artists come together for charity

ART AND charity mixed and mingled when Dwellings staged an event entitled ‘Splash – the Furniture Art Charity Event’ at its Canewood, St Thomas location on Saturday night.

The fundraiser, the brainchild of Dwellings, was for the Barbados RSPCA, the Ark Animal Welfare Society, Variety the Children’s Charity and the Substance Abuse Foundation and saw four fine artists - Shane Eastmond, Alexander Marshall, Kevon ‘Von’ Hall and Alanis Forde - representing each of the charities, creating works on coffee tables as guests mingled and watch the creations unfold.

The completed pieces were then sold via silent auction and the monies raised donated to the charities. (HLE)
