Doves for Peace by Lucy

Look out for the upcoming auction of the Doves For Peace project and help support Unicef to raise awareness of the suffering and plight of children caught up in war zones across the globe.

Doves for Peace have asked artists and celebrities to do a spontaneous drawing of a dove, the international symbol of peace.
The Doves will be auctioned on Thursday 17th October 2019
by Fieldings Auctioneers in Stourbridge, Dudley.

I’ve contributed two new pieces.

- ‘Doves for Peace' was established in 1999 by Dorothy Claxton in response to the plight of innocent children caught up in violent conflicts and fleeing from war torn countries around the world. The concept was to invite high profile personalities to make a spontaneous drawing of a dove, with the intention of selling them at auction. Skip forward 20 years and the wonderful work Dorothy has put in to this project will come to fruition, with the help of Heather Anderson and Beth Hiscock. With over 200 drawings and sculptures to go up for auction on Thursday 17th October at 7pm.  Fieldings will be hosting the private invite only preview before hand from 5pm-7pm, please contact us for tickets.
