Artist Sam Gare, from Morden London, has announced an exhibition of her work at the renowned Curious Duke Gallery near Old Street, launching on Tuesday 4 July for a limited time only. The exhibition, titled ‘Might’, will raise money for blood cancer research charity Bloodwise, after Sam was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia earlier this year.
Sam, 34, has teamed up with her friend Eleni Duke, 27 - who became the capital’s youngest gallerist when she opened the Curious Duke Gallery on Whitecross Street in 2011 – to host the exhibition running from 4 to 8 July 2017 and solely featuring Sam’s impressive and striking work.
The exhibition is a way for Sam to combine her passion for art with her determination to raise money to fund research that is helping to find more targeted treatments for patients with blood cancers such as leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
“Unfortunately there are so many types of blood cancer still affecting and taking many lives, and it is charities like Bloodwise that have helped fund the research for treatments like mine. The exhibition will reflect the strength and power of both mountains and those fighting cancer and will display my artwork from the last few years, with 50% of all sales going directly to the charity.
Eleni Duke, adds: “we are honoured to be hosting this exhibition for Samantha Gare by raising awareness for blood cancer and showing support to Samantha’s emerging artistic career. We delighted to be able support this event as the chosen venue as well as to inspire viewers with the beauty of Samantha’s art work.”
Curious Duke Gallery will be hosting the opening night on the 4th July 6-9 exhibiting 15 pieces of Sam Gare’s Art work.
