The Butterflies & Rainbows
Art Auction

We are delighted to announce that a group of world-renowned artists has contributed to an online art auction aimed at spreading positivity and raising vital funds for disabled children.

Butterflies & Rainbows Fundraising Campaign

As part of our Butterflies and Rainbows fundraising campaign; we asked children, families and celebrity ambassadors to ‘Paint Donate Nominate’. This involved everyone creating a work-of-art in the theme of butterflies and rainbows, sharing it on social media, making a donation and then challenging friends and family to do the same.

 

The artworks created by the public came back in a variety of different forms and mediums including etch-a-sketch, face make-up, paintings, sculptures and even painted poodles! The four artists featured in this online auction were inspired to take part in the campaign, so this is how their unique pieces of art came into being. Our sincere thanks to all four artists for generously donating their art to help disabled children at this challenging time

The Caudwell Children ‘Butterflies & Rainbows’ auction features four artworks, donated exclusively for the auction by four leading contemporary artists Finn Stone, Anita Klein, Nick Matson and Swiss-based Massimo Agostinelli; all of whom have enjoyed global critical success for their works.
