As a means of working towards its sustainability and keep helping young children with cancer and blood diseases, Toufoula is holding its first auction, entitled “Auction Night for a Better Tomorrow”, on Tuesday June 5th, 2012, at Mark Hachem’s contemporary art gallery.
Different types of artworks will be exhibited such as sculptures, paintings, photographs, and furniture items, which have been generously donated by local and regional artists, many of whom have showcased their work in important galleries in Lebanon and around the world.
Participating artists are: Daisy Abi Jaber, Farouk Muhammad, George Merheb, Ghassan Abou Jaoude, Ginou Choueiri, Hala Dabaji, Hassan Alameddine, Hiba Kalache, Imad Fakhry, Jesus Rafael Soto, Joe Kesrouani, Kashida, Lamia Joreige, Leila Chalabi, Leila Jureidini, MaryLynn Massoud, Mauro Corda, Mona Trad Dabaji, Nada Debs, Nada Hobeiche, Rafik Majzoub, Ramy Boutros, Randa Ali Ahmad, Rasha Nawam, Ricardo Mbarkho, Roger Moukarzel, Sabhan Adam, Samer Mohdad, Shafik Eshtai, Wissam Beydoun, Zena Assi and Ziad Antar.
The gallery opens its doors at 6 PM, but the auction will start at 7 PM. There will also be a preview date for the artworks on June 4th, 2012. The event will have Maxime Chaya as Toufoula’s guest of honor, and will be hosted by Dan Harper as the auctioneer.
