‘Fine Art Sails‘ Regatta 2014 Cowes

Star_Regatta_1
6 Stars competed in the 2014 edition of the Fine Art Sails Regatta, which was held in the premier sailing location in front of the Green in Cowes, during Cowes Week. Whilst earlier in the day, Cowes Week racing had been abandoned due to fickle breeze, the Star’s start time of 1700 meant that they experienced champagne conditions of 12-14kts and glorious evening sunshine.
This was the second edition of this unique event which was put together by RTYC member Peter Bonham-Christie, with Michael Ross and his CNM Estates Company, including my artwork “An Eye for the Buoys”, based on “EVE”, a steel panel suspended portrait in limited edition.

Exhibition ArtCatto, Portugal

24 April - 23 July 2014
Exhibition at ARTCATTO, Loulé, Portugal

“We are so delighted to welcome David Begbie to this exhibition I have been a long time admirer and friend of this hugely talented sculptor. His hand worked wire mesh sculptures which on their own are stunningly forceful but then the added beauty of them when lit, as they throw shadows on the walls, make them spectacular.” Gillian Catto.

I have been invited by Stephanie Harwood and Krassi Gormley to represent the UK in this forthcoming fundraising event and I am very pleased to be able to offer a sculpture originally made as a working maquette for a giant sculpture commissioned for the Millennium Dome, London in 1999.
The Consul Spouses Shanghai (CSS) Project with representatives from over 30 diplomatic missions' fund raising activity 2014 is an art project designed to help Children of the World and to support International Women's Day to which I have donated "PROTU" for exhibition and auction.
Krassi Gormley, wife of Irish CG, is the President of CSS and is organising the event which will undoubtedly attract considerable media attention. More info: Sh-Artshow (Chinese / English)

The ‘Children Around the World’ art exhibition at the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center

On Sunday 2 March 2014 a live auction took place at the exhibition centre, including PROTU. The sculpture fetched RMB 23,000 (approx. £2,300.00) and all funds will go towards helping children with birth defects have corrective surgery. I am very happy the sale of "PROTU" could fund 10 operations for correction of cleft palate.

Winter Pride Indoor Party at Tobacco Docks, London
London will be playing host to its first Winter Pride on 8 February 2014 - a new mid-Winter festival for gay London, Winter Pride (winterprideuk.com) at the capital’s Tobacco Dock (http://tobaccodocklondon.com/): a historic location between Tower Hill and Wapping that has now been transformed into a major exhibitions space.
Winter Pride will seek to bring together the biggest LGBT club brands and international DJs for a real winter warmer of a party, a fully enclosed, indoor event. It won’t just be about dancing and clubbing, though. The event will also boast a market and community area, and a highlight of the day will be the The Winter Pride UK Awards.

The first ever Winter Pride includes not only an art competition for emerging artists but a breathtaking exhibition of installation art and sculpture from a diverse group of international artists.I am happy to be invited showing NUUDIS and other mesh sculpture at the Awards room!
