Art feeds art

Sarah’s Jazz Club in Nicosia has a place in our hearts as a jazzy spot to catch some great vibes, but it is also a place with a big heart itself, and a giving personality. Together with The Space Art for Charity, an art exhibition is currently being held at the jazz club to raise funds for The Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends (PASYKAF).

The exhibition, titled ‘Life’, can be viewed daily between 11am and 1am (during the live jazz events held from 8pm onwards, entry is subject to the applicable ticket price). The exhibition, which is a collection of art donated by artists from across Cyprus, is available for viewing and the art pieces are permanently available for purchase until further notice. All money received from the sale of these art pieces will go to cancer patients.

The Space Art for Charity has currently collected a total of €16,200 from the ‘Life’ exhibition and all of this amount has been given to the cause. Sarah’s Jazz Club exhibition space has donated the space for free, so that every cent can go to charity.

Sarah’s Jazz Club is one of five donated venues where the remaining art will be sold to increase the total for PASYKAF.

The Space Art for Charity has raised over €26,000 from three exhibitions over the last 18 months – primarily for PASYKAF but also for Cancer Patients’ Support Group and Archangel Michael Hospice.

The exhibition is being held in memory of the writer and media personality (and Cyprus Mail writer) Jill Campbell Mackay, who passed away earlier this year of liver cancer and was a fearless advocate for cancer patients’ rights to quality of life.

Group art exhibition to raise funds for PASYKAF. Sarah’s Jazz Club, Xanthis Xenierou, 35, Nicosia. 11am-1pm. Tel: 95147711
