The Great Art Raffle

The Great Art Raffle raising funds for the core operating costs of G126, an artist led visual arts organization and gallery.

Blaise Drummond has kindly donated a painting for this raffle, ‘Island No. 6’.

Blasie Drummond’s work has been exhibited widely across Europe and America. His work sits in the IMMA collection, Ireland's museum for modern and contemporary art and in many important collections around the world.

Drummond's paintings, whether seen as a series or in isolation, explore the tenuous relationship between nature and culture. His works attempt to excavate hope of an abiding natural world, amidst the debris of civilization’s relentless progress.

There are 250 tickets going on sale, at 20 euros a ticket.

Once all the tickets are sold the raffle will take place in the G126 Gallery and the winner will be announced via the G126 Blog. www.g126.blogspot.com

Tickets will be available at The G126 gallery, The Galway Arts Center and various locations throughout Galway.

For further information please see the G126 Blog which has a ticket counter, counting down the tickets sold, and also contains an image of the painting for raffle, 'Island No.6' OIL AND GLOSS ON BOARD 91.5 X 91.5CM.

G126 office number 091 761626 Thursday, Friday and Saturday 12 – 5pm
