They say art is long and life is short. So, if you’d like your life to imitate art, then make sure to check out this year’s Incognito 2021 online art sale in aid of the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.
The largest art sale in Ireland will go live on Thursday April 22 at 10am sharp. With last year’s sale having sold out in minutes, potential buyers are being urged to be quick off the mark in 2021.
The key attraction behind Incognito is that each original postcard-sized artwork – from oils and pastels, to glass and metalwork – costs just €60, but purchasers won’t know the identity of the artist until the sale has closed.
Incognito features a Who’s Who of the Irish art scene, including Adrian+Shane, Robert Ballagh, Ange Bell, Tom Climent, Peter Curling, Vincent Devine, Guggi, Jill & Gill, Maser, Ed Miliano, Martin Mooney, Abigail O’Brien, Mick O’Dea, Una Sealy, and Helen Steele.
Among the perhaps more familiar faces taking part this year are Bob Geldof, fashion designer Paul Costelloe, comedian Jason Byrne, and artist Don Conroy.
2021 will be the fifth year of Incognito which to date has raised almost €450,000 for Jack & Jill’s home nursing care for very sick children.
For curator Lucinda Hall, Incognito 2021 is an opportunity to bring art to new audiences: “Every year we are delighted to showcase the work of emerging artists alongside more established names from the Irish art scene. Each of our participating artists has given their art for free and it is a huge tribute to their generosity of time and spirit following what has been an extremely difficult period for the arts world.”
So, whether you’re an art collector or a bargain hunter, check out www.incognito.ie from Wednesday March 31 when the online preview goes live.
