Crown Fine Art supports The House of St BarnabasFebruary 5, 2020
Crown Fine Art is proud to support the London-based charity, The House of St Barnabas for an exclusive training programme. The charity runs as a Private Members Club, with the specific aim of raising funds through its membership to reskill and re-educate people who may have hit on hard times and need help getting back into employment.
One of The House of St Barnabas’ projects is to enhance collaboration and commitment to nurturing talented artists. They invite artists and gallerists to loan or even donate artworks for sale, and exhibitions have included works by Damien Hirst, The Chapman Brothers, Tracey Emin, Roxy Walsh and Tom Gallant; plus lots of new and upcoming talent. The proceeds of all sales go to raising funds for The House of St Barnabas Employment Academy.
For each exhibition held at The House of St Barnabas, we at Crown Fine Art encourage our aspiring art technicians to volunteer their time to train as future art technicians.
This has presented a very close narrative with The House of St Barnabas’ own ethos around up-skilling and training. It also allows us to identify and fast-track our young talents through giving them leadership capabilities and new opportunities.
Paul Beatson, Senior Client Advisor & Project Manager at Crown Fine Art says, “I’m delighted to see how this collaboration is helping develop the careers of our own young talent.”
Paul adds: “The House of St Barnabas is the ideal training ground for up-coming art installers. Unlike any other client, the charity accepts that our trainees might put the occasional hole in the wrong place. However, it’s a great opportunity for them to learn how to put it right and the results are always stunning exhibitions on their walls which everyone benefits from.”
