Our annual art fundraiser, A Letter in Mind, is our creative way of raising money to support advances in neurology, neurosurgery and the neurosciences.
This will be our fifth year and the theme is ‘A Way With Colour’. The artists who have given their support for 2018 include former BP Portrait Award winner Ishbel Myerscough, Royal Academy Summer Exhibition exhibitor Frank Kiely, designers Morag Myerscough and Luke Morgan; award-winning political cartoonist, author and illustrator Chris Riddell, illustrators Tim Hopwood, Polly Dunbar and Bethan Woollvin; artist, curator and magazine editor Harry Pye; musician, artist and former member of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds James Johnston; charity headliners Kevin Eldon and Sophie Thompson, actor Stephen Campbell Moore; and award-winning architects Laurie Chetwood, Andrew Grant and 2017 RIBA Stirling Prize-shortlisted architect Amin Taha.
This year, acclaimed British sculptor Antony Gormley donated a special artwork which will sell alongside A Letter in Mind, via silent auction. Watch this space for more information on how to bid!
The artwork envelopes will all be priced at £85 and sold anonymously at the exhibition at the gallery@oxo, Oxo Tower Wharf in London, in aid of The National Brain Appeal, from 27-30 September 2018. All works are anonymous, and names of the sold artworks will be revealed after the gallery@oxo exhibition closes at 6pm on 30 September.
The proceeds from the exhibition will go towards projects at The National Hospital and The UCL Institute of Neurology. We want to improve the outcome and quality of life for the one in six people affected by a neurological condition in the UK. We fund pioneering research, provide access to the best technology for expert diagnosis and treatment, and help to train tomorrow’s clinicians.
