York Street Gallery RAMSGATE Auctioning Art for Connor

The gallery is holding a charity art auction over the next two days.

Four year old Connor’s parents are Georgina and Wayne Olsen, he also has a younger brother called Kye. The family all live in Westgate-on-Sea, Kent.

The family only discovered that Connor has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) in March 2013.
DMD is a muscle wasting disease that will see Connor in a wheelchair by around 10 years old, it will result in death at a young age.

All the artworks offered for sale, have been kindly donated to the auction (mostly by the artists themselves).

All proceeds will go to the Caring for Connor Campaign.

All artwork can be viewed, during the day, at York Street Gallery on 27 and 28 February from 10 – 4, prior to the auction. The auction is due to begin  at 7pm on 28 February 2014.

Due to the size of the venue, entry to the sale is strictly limited to persons buying a catalogue. The bearer will also be offered a glass of wine and light refreshments in Corby’s Tea Rooms (next door), where they will be asked to register and then be assigned a unique Bidder Number.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
