Stand Tall Art Auction happened in July 2022 and was an act of solidarity through creativity, curated by art-minded friends from Ashburton, Devon; writer Sylvie Saunders, Salty’s screen-printer Sandra Salter and designer Kate Humphries. It was a peaceful and hopeful response to the war in Ukraine and conflict the world over. The aim to spread positivity with art while bringing communities together and raising funds for good causes. And through the generosity of 20+ South West artists the idea became a reality and raised £15K for DEC Ukraine Humanitarian effort and Beyond Borders Totnes, a charity that helps to create a warm welcome and offer support to displaced people arriving into the South West.
We were able to support Sylvie and Kate with printing and retail advice, creating a screenprinted A4 print to sell to raise funds and also contributed to the auction with our own screenprint which sold for £297.
