Friday 4th March: "She Lights Up The Night" at Protein Gallery for Refuge

Lakwena's latest artwork is a light-box spelling out "She Lights up the Night" which has given the name to the group show.  10 other contemporary graphic artists have created a one-off unique art piece to be auctioned at Christies for Refuge.  The timing of the show to raise funds for this charity dealing with domestic violence falls on the week of "International Womens Day".  Curator Aine Donovan has brought together the graphic styles of Supermundane, Camille Walala, Anthony Burrill, Ana Montiel, Charlie Patterson, David Shillinglaw, Hattie Stewart, Jordy Van Den Nieuwendijk and Morag Myerscough.  Extra funds are being pooled with sales of a limited edition screen-print from each artist in conjunction with the theme.  All of these materials and production costs have been donated meaning that 89p of every £1 raised is going direct to Refuge.

The exhibition will be open to the public Friday 4th– Sunday 6th March at Protein Gallery in Shoreditch,  See more information here.
