Have you got a big heArt?

ECE are proud to be the headline sponsor for the very first Big Heart Auction for Chestnut Tree House, taking place February – March 2015

This fundraising event will include over 200 donated artworks from local, national and celebrity artists, illustrators and photographers including artworks from Raymond Briggs – illustrator of the much loved The Snowman and Patron of Chestnut Tree House.

ECE Chairman Tony Clark said

“We have been supporting Chestnut Tree for many years and when this event was put to us we did not hesitate in agreeing to become the auctions headline sponsor as we see a natural affinity between art and architecture. All at ECE are looking forward to making the auction a memorable success.”

Each piece of art will be available for purchase, with all proceeds going to towards supporting both Chestnut Tree House – which cares for over 300 terminally ill children in Sussex and South East Hampshire – and Brighton Dome; itself a registered charity committed to providing a ground-breaking arts programme that touches and enriches thousands of lives.

An online gallery – showcasing all participating Big Heart artists and artworks – will be available to view from Mid-January 2015. The auction will then go live on eBay for Charity from Thursday 26 February to Sunday 8 March. Alongside the online gallery, Brighton Dome will play host to a public Big Heart exhibition from Tuesday 3 to Friday 6 March. The exhibition is free to enter and will be an opportunity to see first-hand artworks from a wide range of artists.
