“Serve the wise who have wisdom, serve the power who have power, serve the

money who have money, people who don’t have anything to give, show your

cheer. ” (Chiharu Matsuyama - Japanese singer, songwriter)

Following the devastating earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan, Open Draw and ASC have partnered

to raise funds for the crisis. We would like to invite you to our special auction to raise desperately needed funds to

help those affected.

This auction offers a great opportunity to buy artwork without paying a gallery commission and with the knowledge

that in most cases 100% of the purchase cost will go directly to aid the crisis in Japan.

Japan is a very beautiful country and we trust they will recover quickly from this massive

devastation with the help of your kind contribution.
