Thank you to photographers Olga Suchkova and Ilya Musaelov
It is always exciting to do something for the first time, but sometimes it is even more exciting to do something for the second time. Of course one wonders whether it will be as good as the first time, but after the second IWC Charity Art Exhibition and Auction, which was organized on March 20 at the PwC House, the IWC is proud to say that this yearâs event not only met the expectations but in many ways it exceeded them.
The event had an even more professional approach as Ms Saskia Ozols Eubanks, an experienced curator, volunteered to help organize the exhibition and to lead the auction. Thanks to sponsors such as PWC, Interform Design, Pepsico and Speransky Hospital an inspiring location was found, where an open wine bar and appetizers accompanied by live music immediately brought participants in the right atmosphere.
Artists Lubov Lubvina, Marie de La Ville BaugÃ©, Ijen Warner, Katerina Gutnikova-Mikhailova, Saskia Ozols Eubanks, Ludmilla Varlamova, David Mercer, Elena Afanasieva, Tatiana Karamysheva, Mikhail Barinov, Catherine de la Hosseraye, Kim Kegelev, Mila Abruzova, Maria Vilkaste, Bianca Alexandra Jutaru, Tran Thi Thao Hien, Gloria Parolin and Anna Schipper-Cherkasova generously donated a piece of their work for the auction, and the IWC is grateful to each and every one of them for their support, which allowed the Club to raise over 200,000 RUR for people in need!
A special thanks of course also goes to all participants for their enthusiastic bidding. Art lovers that missed this yearâs event or are already looking forward to the next one will be happy to hear that the IWC is eager to continue this tradition and wants to organize an even more successful Art Exhibition and Auction next year.
