'Bowie' artwork auction sale raises additional funding for local charities

On Friday 26th April we joined the Mayor and Mayoress of Surrey Heath at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in celebrating all the wonderfully diverse work done by individuals and organisations for the betterment of the community over the past year.

One of our small gestures was to donate an original artwork by Rob Bishop to be auctioned on the night. A huge thank you to everyone that bid on the magnificent Bowie portrait by Rob Bishop, which raised £1,000 at the Mayoral Ball, with proceeds going towards the selected mayoral organisations The Meath Charity and the Frimley Health Charity.

A huge congratulations also to the magnificent contribution Councillor Dan Adams and his wonderful wife Sarah have made to the community this year as the Surrey Heath Borough Council Mayor & Mayoress. Thank you for all you’ve done and will continue to do.

"HO! HO! HO!" Santa & Stavros Flatley come to Town!

In the season to be jolly, Camberley certainly didn’t disappoint and played its part in embracing the festive cheer with the charismatic and dynamic duo Stavros Flatley putting in an energised performance before turning on the Christmas lights and kicking off an incredible fire work display. For the uninitiated, this memorable topless dancing Cypriot family posse were celebrated and highly entertaining contestants from a bygone era of Britain’s Got Talent.

Following on from our recent trip to Miami at the start of the month (read about it here) , we returned to the highly popular venue ‘After Glo’ @ Glo Hair Salon for our Christmas exhibition. As usual, it was very merry with bubbles, cocktails and our signature eclectic mix of artists on show. A special thanks to those that made the evening and another thanks to those who purchased.

In the build up to Christmas we joined the Mayor Dan Adams in dressing up as Santa for a really enjoyable time fundraising for the Surrey Heath Mayor's charities: the Meath Epilepsy charity, the Frimley Health charity and Health Amplifier! Thank you Camberley for all the support you showed us across the town and your generosity that day and evening was exceptional.

Rolls-Royce "Ghost Stories" auction in support of Breast Cancer Care

On Tuesday 30th June, Reem Fine Art had the honour and privilege of being invited to attend a wonderful art collaboration event at The Royal Automobile Club on Pall Mall by Breast Cancer Care.

The charity event's purpose was to raise awareness and further funding for a serious health issue that will effect 1 in 8 people at some point in life. This form of cancer also effects men as well as women and this essential organisation exists to support us all on that journey after diagnosis.

Endorsed by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, 12 critically acclaimed artists were selected to create their own unique interpretations of the famous Ghost car to be auctioned off in aid of supporting the continuous work of Breast Cancer Care. An eclectic range of artists were selected for the project including established household names such as Richard Wentworth and Angela Palmer, Turner Prize winner Mark Wallinger and film director Sam Taylor-Johnson. The occasion proved to also be a prime opportunity for collectors and philanthropists to acquire a collectable artwork from one of the UK's most versatile, popular and in-demand artists including JJ Adams, Charming Baker and Gavin Turk.

The auction night was a huge success achieving in the region of £100,000 through generous bidding and pledges made to a truly great cause. We're pleased to have played our small part, representing our client's winning bid on the JJ Adams's Back to the Future inspired "Outta Time" creation; shown below with Zaid Alexander Badda (Gallery Director).

Further information on the tremendous work and support Breast Cancer Care offers can be found at www.breastcancercare.org.uk

JJ Adams teams up with Rolls-Royce

JJ Adams has been chosen by Rolls-Royce to be one of 12 artists to paint a very unique and incredibly detailed 1:18 scale Rolls-Royce Ghost in aid of raising money for charity.

The scale models will be auctioned off, with the generated proceedings going to the Breast Cancer Care organisation.

This follows on from the huge success of JJ Adam's recent charitable contribution; a 8" x 8" canvas that auctioned through the Willow Foundation's "Stars on Canvas" project which raised a total of £5,100.
