“Art for the Earth” is STITCH’s first major art exhibition and auction, taking place on Wednesday at The Dairy in Russell Square. The exhibition will be curated by Catherine Loewe, showcasing a number of works by emerging to established artists including Darren Almond, Richard Long, Marc Quinn, Richard Wentworth and Vivienne Westwood.
The artworks will span many different disciplines but will all focus on key environmental issues. To complement the exhibition, STITCH is also creating a wall of A5 postcard art called “Stitch Sketches”, which will be drawn, doodled or painted by artists and personalities.
STITCH was set up by a group of young artists, scientists and environmentalists with the aim of raising environmental awareness through art. The not-for-profit organisation believes that art is a fantastic way to communicate to people how little changes in our daily lives can make a big difference to the world. Through its artistic events, which will range from art auctions and photography competitions to short film festivals, STITCH hopes to raise awareness about sustainability and the preservation of resources.
The event takes place from 6pm-10pm on 30 November and you can RSVP by emailing your name to firstname.lastname@example.org. Whether you’re an art-lover, environmentalist or just looking to do something different for your mid-week evening drink, it promises to be a great evening.
