Pattern for Yemen is an initiative by A Friend of Mine and The Souvenir Society enlisting the help of 15 local and international artists to help raise funds for the crisis in Yemen, one of the largest humanitarian issues currently facing the global community.
Although our exhibition took place in October 2018, A number of art cloths are still available through our online shop below. If you intend to buy one (or two, or three!), get in quick as we will be closing the store on Friday 26 October unless sold out sooner.
The U.N. estimates that more than 22 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in Yemen and of those, as many as 8 million children under the age of 5 are acutely malnourished and cholera is rampant.
Our amazing artists have each donated an artwork to be printed onto a large art cloth, which are sold online here with all proceeds going to humanitarian aid in Yemen through the International Committee of the Red Cross' Yemen Crisis Appeal. One of each of the cloths was framed by United Measures and auctioned off at the opening night of our exhibition — a testament to the art of giving.
Thanks for joining us in raising money, raising glasses and raising spirits.
On the opening night of the exhibition, the hilarious Andy Murray grabbed his gavel and played auctioneer, finding a home for each of the one-of-a-kind art cloths, framed expertly by United Measures.
And importantly, thanks to everyone who came along to the event at James Makin! Without you it wouldn't have been such a success.
Online sales for unframed editions are still available until Friday 26 October or until sold out. At the exhibition opening night, each and every one of the framed editions successfully went under the hammer and found a new home through our charity auction.
