Making Light Work at the Oxo Tower

Last night was the opening of the latest and greatest charity event organised to raise money and awareness for The National Brain Appeal. More than 350 artworks are on display - the loose theme of the show was, "making light work". Contributors to the exhibition include; current Tate Modern exhibitor Olafur Eliasson, Tracey Emin CBE RA, Mark Dion, David Shrigley, Chantal Joffe, Kate Sherman, BP Portrait Award winners Ishbel Myerscough and Mark Entwisle; Royal Academy Summer Exhibition exhibitors Tom Hammick, and Gill Rocca, plus Mikey Georgeson, Harry Pye, Terry Hall, James Johnston , Gordon Beswick, and the actor Kevin Eldon. Each person donated a work. All the works are on sale for £85. All the money goes to the charity.

Please Note: The project is called, 'Letter in Mind' as each contributing artist was given an envelope to use as they saw fit. All the works are sold anonymously. Last night The Southbank's OXO tower was very well attended and many of the £85 envelopes were sold. If you can't make it down to Waterloo, you can buy the work online...
