Asprey exhibition raises funds to stop tiger poaching
Rosie Corcoran’s work supports The Wildlife Protection Society of India
NOVEMBER 23 2014
For the first time, Asprey is adding contemporary art to its list of covetable wares – with an exhibition at its flagship store on New Bond Street in December.
Celebrated British wildlife artist Rosie Corcoran, best known for her striking depictions of tigers, will show 32 large-scale charcoal and pastel drawings and limited-edition silkscreen prints to help raise funds for the Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI).
The charity works to prevent illegal wildlife trade and poaching, particularly of wild tigers, but also supports community projects. Corcoran’s artworks will help fund a nursery school on the fringe of the charity’s Sundarbans Tiger Reserve, which provides schooling for 50 children and education on conservation awareness.
Bold & Beautiful, December 4-21 2014, 167 New Bond Street, London W1 (020-7493 6767; www.asprey.com). Artworks, from £5,750; limited-edition silkscreen prints, £900 unframed, £1,200 framed. At least 5 per cent of the sale price goes to WPSI.
