Lucy Stein produces artwork for charity auction
30th Jan 2017
Following the awful storms that hit Cornwall in February 2014, the normally peaceful and romantic harbour in Porthleven was in pieces. 10 out of the 40 boats were destroyed, and huge two tonne harbour defences were left broken, floating around in the water below. Fast forward three years and the wood from the former baulks is being put to good use in aid of The Fishermen’s Mission, a charity who raise much needed funds for fishing communities around the country. The wood has been cut down into manageable sizes and given to artists near and far, including Lucy Stein, Rick’s niece, to create something unique which can be auctioned off to help support the vital work the charity does in Cornwall. Lucy’s painting, entitled ‘Red Moon Cycle’, will sit alongside nearly 200 pieces of art, sculpture and furniture when the auction takes place on Saturday 18th March.
Keep an eye on their Facebook page for more updates and to see some of the artwork that’s for sale.
