Anish Kapoor print raffle winner Anne Grange collects her prize from Pitzhanger
Today, the lucky winner of our raffle to win a limited edition etching by Sir Anish Kapoor, collected her prize from Pitzhanger Director Clare Gough.
Anne Grange from Borehamwood told us: “I am absolutely delighted to win the print. I visited the Gallery last year to see the Kapoor exhibition and the newly restored building. It was a wonderful day out and I was happy to be able to enter the raffle in support of the gallery.”
Clare Gough added: “I’m happy to have presented this artwork to Anne today – and very grateful to everyone who supported our Artists for Pitzhanger campaign to support Pitzhanger through these difficult times.”
Pitzhanger is thankful for every single donation, purchase and raffle ticket sold as part of our recent Artists for Pitzhanger, a fundraising drive to raise essential funds to keep us open and support our learning and outreach programmes, following the dramatic loss of income due to the impact of Covid. The month-long raffle generated a significant contribution of £10,000, with the overall initiative reaching its target of £65,000.
The signed and numbered artwork Untitled (2015), was donated by Sir Anish Kapoor, its red and encroaching darkness recalling his signature artistic concern with the poetic quality of colour and organic form. Kapoor’s critically-acclaimed exhibition of mirror sculptures was the inaugural show at Pitzhanger following our reopening after major restoration in 2019.
