Park West Gallery Hosts Online Fundraiser for Ukrainian Relief Efforts
Park West Gallery is holding a special fundraiser to support the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine during their March 10-13 live-streaming online art auctions.
Park West, the world’s largest art dealer, will be donating 100% of the proceeds from over 100 works of art to the Ukrainian Red Cross, which has been repairing infrastructure, supporting families, and providing food, water, and medicine to those who need it in Ukraine.
To participate, interested parties only need to go to parkwestgallery.com/online to sign up to attend the online auctions.
The live-streaming auctions will take place from Friday, March 11 through Sunday, March 13.
Park West Gallery Founder and CEO Albert Scaglione appeared on the popular radio program “Michigan’s Big Show” to discuss the upcoming fundraiser with host Michael Patrick Shiels. (His segment begins at 4:52.)
Two of the featured artists originally come from Romania—the former child prodigy Alexandra Nechita with a collection of paintings on canvas, paintings on paper, sculptures, and graphic works, and celebrated abstract artist András Markós with a collection of paintings and ceramics. 100% of all proceeds from all of the art sold by Nechita and Markós during the fundraising weekend will go to the Ukrainian Red Cross.
The auctions will also feature art by two American artists with Ukrainian roots—Anatole Krasnyansky was born in Kiev and the late Igor Medvedev came from Kharkov. An original painting along with an edition of graphic works will be made available from each of the artists, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the relief efforts.
Three other acclaimed American artists—Autumn de Forest, James Coleman, and Mark Kostabi (who comes from an Estonian family)—will also be donating an original painting along with an edition of graphic works to the charity auction. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Ukrainian Red Cross.
Finally, Park West will be donating two works from their museum collection to the fundraiser—a Millennium Edition etching from the Dutch master Rembrandt van Rijn and an original creation by famed Israeli legend Yaacov Agam. 100% of the proceeds will also go to the Ukrainian Red Cross.
“What’s happening in Ukraine right now is a tragedy,” said Park West Founder and CEO Albert Scaglione. “Ukraine has a wonderful cultural and artistic history, and we believe this fundraiser is very important to the Ukrainian people and will provide significant assistance.”
