Artists are raising funds for burglary victim Alexandra Trotsenko.
It was a vicious attack on this Russian artist, who is married to an Irishman and lives in Dublin. The attacker cut off most of the fingers from her drawing hand. The money raised will help with her rehabilitation.
The Irish Times has more here.
Samples of Ms. Trotsenko's work and some of the items all ready assembled for the auction here.
If you are interested in contributing to the auction, Adams Blackrock Auctioneers needs your submission by November 21, 2011.
Contact Martina Noonan at this e-mail address:
They would like a scan (preferably as a PDF) of the piece to include in the auction booklet as soon as possible.
