She Lights up the Night

She Lights up the Night is an exhibition coinciding with International Women’s Day, in aid of women’s charity Refuge. Established by founder of They Made This and BBH production director Aine Donovan, it is a graphic art exhibition, where prints are available to buy and ultimately the work is sold to raise funds.

Refuge is a national charity which provides a wide range of specialist services to support women and children experiencing domestic violence and other forms of gender-based violence. On any given day their services support almost 5,000 women and children.
The exhibition was opened with a private view last Thursday evening at the Protein Gallery.
Some of the featured artists are Jean Julien, Jon Burgerman, Hattie Stewart, Siggi Eggertsson, Kindah Khalidy, Crispin Finn, Steve Wilson, Mike Perry, Daisy Emerson, Lauren Baker, Hannah Waldron, Olivia Healy, Poul Webb, Letman, Rude, Hense.
The silkscreen prints which were all on sale on the evening are printed by Harvey Lloyd Screenprint. All the print was donated to the charity and we also supplied our lovely Matrisse 200gsm free of charge to support the project.

The exhibition was featured in an article in the Evening Standard here. Thanks needs to be shared all round, to the artists who gave their time and work for nothing, to Protein, Harvey Lloyd Screenprint and especially to Aine Donovan for organising and arranging the whole event - pats on the back all round!
