Local fused glass artist Mandy Treptow is joining fellow artists to showcase new work and raise money for Save the Children.

Wednesday 6July 2011, 6.00pm to 9.00pm, 177 Westbourne Grove, London W11 2SB

For one night only, Mary’s Living & Giving Shop Supporting Save the Children will be hosting an evening with Just Glass, who will be showcasing the works of internationally acclaimed and emerging glass artists. The evening will be the only occasion in 2011when this collection of beautiful jewellery, stylish vessels and unique sculptures will be exhibited and available for purchase.

The ‘Just Glass at Mary’s Living & Giving’ event will take place on 6 July 2011 at Mary’s Living and Giving Shop supporting Save the Children on Westbourne Grove (6pm – 9pm).  Work on show will include cast glass pieces by internationally renowned artist Angela Thwaites and the intricate gilding of Frances Federer. On the evening you will also have the opportunity to meet the artists firsthand, discuss the inspiration behind their collection, knowing that monies raised from your purchases will go towards saving a child’s life.

This event is being held in conjunction with Notting Hill’s First Wednesdays, with a percentage of funds raised on the evening going towards Save the Children’s, ‘No Child Born Without a Chance’ campaign.

Eight million children die every year from easily preventable causes, such as pneumonia or diarrhoea.  Save the Children’s ‘No Child Born to Die campaign, calls for vaccinations to be made available for the world’s poorest children – a move which could save a quarter of these children from dying.  The campaign is being backed by a range of celebrities, including Alexandra Burke, Helena Bonham Carter and Natasha Kaplinsky.

Chris Coe, Retail Trading Director for Save the Children says:

‘Save the Children are thrilled to play host to Just Glass at Mary’s Living & Giving Shop.  They have personally handpicked the crème de la crème when it comes to talent, so I know there will be some fabulous pieces for sale.  This act of generosity says a lot about Just Glass, and for this we are truly grateful.  It’s amazing to think that by shopping at Mary’s Living & Giving, you can make a real difference to a child’s life somewhere in the world.  This is the ultimate in guilt free shopping.’

Su Herbert, Chair of Just Glass added:

‘We are excited to be able to show our artists’ work in this elegant and unusual setting and delighted to be raising money for such a worthwhile cause in the process’.

The full range of artists exhibiting will be Angela Thwaites, Charlie Murphy, Frances Federer, Ingrid Hunter, Joanna Waddy, Julia Hayward, Julie Light, Maha Jacobs, Mandy Treptow, Phillipa Candy, Stuart Turnbull, Su Herbert and Wendy Newhofer.
