Weʼre raising £11,500 to mount an exhibition of work. 15% of sale proceeds donated to Greenpeace for their campaign against plastic bottles polluting our oceans.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Alistair Delves revels in the shapes and forms of life and nature, creating intense dialogues of colour to express his own distinctive vision, true to himself, and true to the subjects that have inspired him.
Since his last exhibition in 2002 he has become very increasingly interested in capturing the core essence of a subject whether it be the figure, landscape and Abstraction where a connection is made with the viewer at a deep level beyond the mists of time, language and history; though gesture, mark making and colour.
He is planning to mount an exhibition in 2019 and needs to raise funds as the costs are prohibitive; 78% for example goes on framing and hire of the gallery alone!
He is keen to donate part of the proceeds of any sale to support a cause he feels very strongly about and that is eliminating plastic bottles and detritus from polluting and destroying the planet’s precious ocean.
Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans. By 2025, forecasts suggest there will be 10 bags full of plastic per foot of coastline across the globe; so we all need to play our part however small in supporting Greenpeace.
It would be great if you were able to donate a small amount to help me mount this exhibition and you will receive an e - invitation to the private view.
