Private View Andrew Giddens

We had a brilliant evening at the private view of "Cornish Coast" by Andrew Giddens. As well as collectors, artists and friends, we were joined by Andrew's family, and were delighted to be introduced to his grandfather who is justifiably proud of his grandson and to whom we raised a glass! The work looked wonderful and over a dozen works have already sold.

After the Private View we went to the Made For Life Charity Ball where two prints donated by Beside The Wave to the Charity Auction attracted intensely competitive bids and rasied over £300 for the Charity. These were "Falmouth Sails" by Andrew Tozer and "Summer Flowers" by Amanda Hoskin. 
Made For Life supports people with cancer by providing opportunities for health, healing and laughter and, in short, a holistic approach to life and wellbeing. Amanda Barlow, founder of Made for Life was 'made up' (excuse the pun) as the night raised £8,000 for the charity, and we were delighted to raise a glass to her too!
