Exclusive artwork up for grabs in one-off auction for local children’s hospice

An exclusive, specially commissioned piece of art from one of the country’s leading artists will be up for grabs this week, in a one-off charity auction.

Renowned artist, Jon Stiff has donated a stunning original piece for the auction – with 100% of proceeds from its sale going to Acorns Children’s Hospice, a charity which provides care to children and families across the Midlands.

One lucky art collector will have the opportunity to get their hands on the work, entitled ‘the Journey’, via an online auction which launches this Friday 11th December and runs for 10 days.

Commenting on his creation, Stratford-upon-Avon based Jon Stiff said the piece was inspired by the work of Acorns and the charity’s care for families through challenging times. He said:

“I’m absolutely delighted I’ve been given the opportunity to create this work for such a worthy charity.

“What this particular creation represents for me is the passage of time. It’s also an emotive piece, with four distinct areas each depicting a different feeling as it progresses towards light and hope.

“It’s a sizeable piece with real purpose and I absolutely adore it. It’s a privilege to know that this work will help benefit the work of Acorns and the local families this wonderful charity supports.”

Alongside ‘the Journey’, the auction will feature a further 40 lots, made up of work donated by local artists and collectors, and a number of limited edition prints from well-known names including Sarah Taylor, Paul Normansell and street-artist Gent48. Olivia Kaluna, Partnership Fundraising Manager at Acorns, added:

“We’re so grateful to Jon for donating such a powerful piece of work to the auction. This is a fantastic opportunity for collectors to get their hands on something unique and it will be a striking addition to any home.

“As a charity, we rely on fundraising to continue our work, so the funds raised from this auction will be vital in helping us continue our work caring for children and their families. A huge thank you to Jon and all the other wonderful artists and collectors for contributing to this auction.”

Acorns Children’s Hospice provides specialist palliative care for children and young people with life limiting and life-threatening conditions. It costs the charity £27,000 every day to continue and it relies on donations for the majority of that amount.
