A huge number of celebrities have contributed to Stars On Canvas 2012, to raise much needed funds for the Willow Foundation.
Stars on Canvas is a colourful and imaginative art project created by hundreds of well-known names from the worlds of art, illustration, sport, music and entertainment. Collectively, the canvases can be seen as an exploration of modern culture – how we come to revere a diverse range of stars for their particular talents, skills and personalities, and sometimes simply for their fame.
All canvases will be sold online in aid of national charity, the Willow Foundation, and exhibited at Maddox Arts – a London based gallery which has kindly donated its gallery space. The eBay auction will finish on the penultimate day of the public exhibition.
Among the stars who have donated artworks to the auction/exhibition include Mo Farah, Thierry Henry, Wayne Rooney, Katherine Jenkins, John Hurt, Fearne Cotton, Julia Sawalha, Jamie Rednapp, Robbie Coltrane, Ashley Cole, Kelly Holmes, Terry Jones and many more.
The artworks will be available on eBay from November 22 to December 2, and the exhibition will be held in London from November 29 to December 1. Proceeds will benefit the Willow Foundation, a national charity that provides special days for seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds throughout the UK. The charity was set up by Arsenal legend Bob Wilson and his wife, Megs, in memory of their daughter who died of cancer aged just 31.
