Art auction for flood appeal

Our flood section cover ‘We Are Carlisle’, painted for Carlisle Living by city artist Derek Eland, will be just one of 150 pieces of art to be auctioned in aid of Cumbria Community Foundation Flood Fund.

Love Cumbria Floods Appeal Art Auction – to be held at Carlisle’s Halston Hotel on Thursday, February 11 – will include works by nationally and internationally known artists who are currently being asked to donate a painting. The event is a collaboration between Cumbrian artists, Tullie House, The University of Cumbria, The Halston Hotel, Cumbria Life and Carlisle Living and is expected to raise tens of thousands of pounds.
