60 Galway artists have generously donated their art to Incognito 2022, Ireland’s largest online art sale, in aid of the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.

Now in its sixth year, Incognito is different to other art sales in that the buyer has no idea who the artist is until after the sale closes.

Among the Galway artists taking part this year are Janet Mercer from Cleggan, Antoinette O’Mahony from Furbo, Damien Glynn from Glenamaddy, Penny Cahill from Barna, Mary Louise Hynes from Bushypark, Lorraine Fletcher from Loughrea, and Adrienne M. Finnerty from Spiddal.

Funds raised from Incognito 2022 will help provide specialist home nursing care, respite support and end-of-life care for 26 children with highly complex medical and life-limiting conditions across the county.

The postcard-sized works of art are priced at €65 each, and not only will purchasers be supporting a great cause in Jack and Jill, they will secure a piece of art that they truly love, without knowing who the artist is, and that’s something really special.

The collection can now be viewed online at www.incognito.ie, where prospective purchasers are being urged to register and select their favourites ahead of the sale which takes place on Thursday April 21 from 9.30am.
